How Safe Are Pediatric Eye Exams

Ensuring that your child has the best vision possible is a priority for most parents. Our team at Shippee Family Eye Care is ready to check your child’s eyes and provide solutions if your child needs vision correction. Some parents wonder if pediatric eye exams and other eye care services are safe. Our optometrists at Shippee Family Eye Care use techniques and methods that are perfectly safe for your child. Whether you are in Lancaster, Montpelier, Littleton, St. Johnsbury, or the surrounding areas, we are here to work with you and your child.

What Is Involved in a Pediatric Eye Exam?

Pediatric eye exams are similar to adult eye exams. We take your child’s medical history and discuss things like school and developmental milestones. We perform a few basic tests, including a cover test and color vision tests. We administer other tests as needed. We always make sure the child knows what we are doing so he or she is not startled.

Diagnosing an eye condition in a child provides us with the opportunity to take steps to maintain the child’s vision as well as possible. Whether your child needs eyeglasses, contact lenses, or other interventions, we will make sure that you and your child understand what is going on and what options are available.

Our team strives to ensure that the children we see are comfortable during the pediatric eye exam. Going to the doctor is something that your child will do for the rest of his or her life, so we do not want it to be something they dread.
