Eye Care Services for Children

If you need a Meridian eye doctor for your child, Dr. Duong and Dr. Dooley are here to help. Our pediatric optometrists have years of experience with children's vision and eye care, and they want to make sure your child's eyes are protected for years to come. Our lifelong eye care services include pediatric eye exams, treatments for common vision and eye conditions, and corrective eye wear that is designed to withstand the wear and tear of childhood.  

Yearly Eye Exams in Meridian for Kids

Your child's eye health and vision will play important roles in his or her overall quality of life. Vision problems affect children's academic and athletic performances, and untreated eye conditions may lead to permanent damage without proper treatment. Fortunately, childhood is a great time to start keeping track of our patients' eye health. Even if your child has no noticeable vision problems, we recommend annual eye exams for all our pediatric patients in Meridian.

In addition to diagnosing common vision conditions and pinpointing your child's refractive errors, our pediatric eye exams may reveal the early symptoms of eye conditions or health problems that need treatment. If our optometrists detect conditions or injuries early enough, they will recommend the proper treatment and prevent permanent damage.

Vision Tests for Children

Vision screenings at your pediatrician's office are not substitutes for a full medical vision test. At least once a year, schedule an appointment for a comprehensive vision test with a pediatric optometrist in Meridian. Our eye doctors look closely at every child's eyes, testing the following traits and skills in particular:

  • Visual Acuity

  • Focusing

  • Eye Tracking

  • Field of Depth

  • Peripheral Vision

  • Color Identification

Kids with poor vision may not realize their eyesight is different from any other student's. Our eye exams aren't limited to near-sightedness or fat-sightedness. We want your kids to excel, so we incorporate all of these criteria and many more into our comprehensive pediatric eye exams.

Treating Vision Conditions That Look Like Behavioral Problems

Unfortunately, common vision conditions often go untreated because teachers and parents mistake them for behavioral problems. At Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian, we want to give your child a proper diagnosis once and for all. For example, if your child is making careless errors in the classroom or failing to pay proper attention in class, we will perform a functional vision test to see if poor vision skills, rather than poor concentration skills, are to blame.

Your Meridian eye doctor truly cares about protecting your child's eyes and improving their vision. Call us now to schedule your child's eye exam and start their lifelong eye care regimen.
