Comprehensive Eye Exams
Our children's eye examination is a fun, effective way to understand your child's visual system and how they function. How they see, understand and interact with the world can play a large role in how successful they are in school and in life. This is the first step in helping us understand your concerns and getting to know your child. We will perform a comprehensive examination that includes a vision check to see if glasses are needed, a functional vision evaluation to see how they use their eyes and a dilated exam to check for eye health issues. This exam is fun and takes about 1 hour. It is much more thorough than a school screening or seeing your pediatrician.
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Dr Johnson performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr Johnson to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
