What are Pediatric Eye Exams?

Eye concerns can happen at any age. In fact, 25% of children have some sort of ocular issue. For this reason, our team at Family Vision Care of Cool Springs offers pediatric eye exams specifically designed with your children in mind. It's recommended that children have their first eye exam by age six months and then again before entering school. Early detection and treatment are essential to effectively treating eye conditions and vision impairments in children. To schedule a pediatric eye exam with one of our optometrists, Drs. Daxx Dunn, Marla Weldon, and Kelly Short, contact our Franklin, TN office.

What Can I Expect During My Child's Eye Exam?

Pediatric eye exams are pretty similar to traditional eye exams, as they are performed to evaluate the structures of the eye and check for acuity issues. Similar to a traditional exam, we'll inspect your child's eyes and eyelids, test numerous muscle movements, assess the alignment of their eyes, and more. These quick and simple assessments help our doctors test for common eye conditions, like lazy eye, congenital glaucoma, and other infections. Based on our findings, we'll discuss treatment options as necessary or we'll schedule your child's next routine exam.

Pediatric Eye Care

Eye health is important at every age, and it's not just something to worry about as we age. The truth is, ocular diseases and conditions can arise at any age, which is why we suggest routine eye exams for your child. Detecting eye issues early on not only allows us to treat them quicker, but it sets your child up for better academic and extracurricular success and just general better well-being.
