Growing Eyes Need Special Care
Give your kids a head start with healthy eyes! At Crum Optometric Group, we work hard to give every child the quality of vision care they deserve. Comprehensive eye exams on a routine schedule help ensure your children have the proper care for their visual needs.
Your child’s eyes develop as they grow. Our optometrists provide a tailored exam for each age group. We want to ensure abnormalities are caught early to prevent motor and social delays related to vision problems.
Let us help your youngest family members find success with healthy vision!
Give Them a Good Head Start
Toddlers (1 to 2 Years Old)
Your child hits several critical visual milestones in the first years of their life as they slowly learn to use their eyes.
At Crum Optometric Group, we would ideally like to meet our youngest patients shortly after their first birthdays. Our optometrists will check your child’s depth perception, hand-eye coordination, and tracking, test for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and assess their overall eye health during this first exam.
Preschoolers (3 to 5 Years Old)
At Crum Optometric Group, we provide early childhood eye exams to ensure your child’s eyesight develops as expected. Parents can help boost their preschooler’s visual skills by providing activities like stacking toys, locking toys, drawing, and coloring.
Supported visual play allows your child to develop essential visual skills in preparation for elementary school.
Transitioning to full school days can be a massive change for our smallest family members, so let’s ensure that their eyes are happy and healthy!
School-Aged Children (6 to 18 Years Old)
Some visual disorders can mimic the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). And untreated visual health issues can result in unnecessary stress and fatigue, affecting your child’s schoolwork, productivity, and attention span.
Signs of a vision problem in your school-aged child include:
- Complaining of fatigue
- Frequent eye rubbing
- Short attention span
- Avoiding reading
- Complaining of headaches
- Reading materials held close to the face
- Eye turning in or out
- Losing their place when reading
- Difficulty remembering what they read
Your child requires many different abilities to succeed at school, and healthy vision is an integral part of that puzzle. Our optometrists provide individualized care for our young patients and work hard to support your child’s healthy eyesight for many years to come.
Hip-Hip-Hooray for Healthy Eyes!
Our children need an experienced team in their early years, and at Crum Optometric Group, we’re always in your corner!
We provide top-notch eye care in our comfortable and compassionate environment and a wide selection of fun eyeglasses or sunglasses to satisfy all of our young friends’ quirky styles. Please call us today for more information on how to get them started with total vision health.
