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.
"Wow! What great and friendly service today - a definite 5 stars! My old Ray-Ban frames were crumbing apart at the ear pieces. The on- duty optician switched my lenses to the new Ray-Ban frames that I purchased there. She did a outstanding job! I highly recommend this office! -J.

"This group of medical professionals offer a friendly atmosphere incorporated with a high degree of professionalism. I have been a patient of Dr. Dunn's for years, and with unusual eye conditions, I feel so thankful that he is my doctor, offering expansive knowledge in this field. My daughter also uses this clinic. As a child with severe headaches, we had seen many specialists, none of whom were able to help her. When she went to this clinic, they determined during a routine eye exam the condition she had, and finally after almost 20 years have been able to rectify the situation. The professionalism, knowledge, care, and compassion for their patients is superb."- S.C. / Google / Apr 14, 2021

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.
