Children’s Eye Exams in Reno, Nevada

Book Appointment

Bring the Whole Family to Dr. Jennifer L. Shane & Associates

Children’s development is closely linked to their eyes and their ability to see. Once children enter school, their vision is tested even further, as 80% of classroom learning is visual. Students depend on their eyes for reading, writing, and seeing the board while at school.

Because of this, eye exams are an essential step in protecting your child’s eyesight and ocular health. Give your child their best chance of seeing everything life has to offer with regular eye exams.

Your child can visit us for an eye exam from the time they turn 6 years old and beyond. If your child is under 6 years old, we will refer them to a pediatric specialist.

The Eye Exam

The American Optometric Association recommends that children undergo one eye exam between 6 and 12 months of age, then once again between the ages of 3 and 5, and then annually between the ages of 6 and 17.

This frequency allows us to check that your child’s eyes are developing correctly. During these exams, we look at the eyes’ structure and function using high-tech, but non-invasive, optometric equipment to take a closer look at each eye’s retina, macula, and optic nerve.

We also test their visual acuity, eye teaming or binocular vision, and color vision. Ocular conditions like strabismus (crossed eyes), amblyopia (lazy eye), and myopia (nearsightedness) can be mitigated with early detection.

Myopia Control For Your Child’s Future

Myopia, or nearsightedness, generally develops in school-aged children and progresses until they reach 20 years old. However, it’s being diagnosed in younger children and with higher frequency.

However, there are ways to manage it. Multifocal lenses, for example, help control the progression of myopia in children. Additionally, having your child’s eyes checked at least once a year will help us determine if they have refractive errors and treat them.

Please request an appointment for your whole family. We’d love to see you!
