Back-to-School Eye Exams at our Optometry Clinic in Fenton

Our optometry clinic in Fenton offers back-to-school eye exams for children of all ages. These exams are designed to identify problems with the way your child’s eyes function so that your child can see clearly. If we notice any deficiencies in your child’s vision a prescription for glasses and other treatments like vision therapy for eye tracking will be recommended.

Benefits of Back-To-School Eye Exams in Fenton

Back-to-School eye exams in Fenton help detect visual acuity problems and eye function problems that make it difficult for your child to learn. Regular eye exams detect problems with your child’s near and distance vision, eye movement, ability to focus on near and distant objects and the way your child’s eye work together. Having your child's eye's examined by our optometrist in Fenton will help correct your child's eye vision problem.

Risk Factors for Childhood Eye Problems

As a parent, you want to be aware of certain signs that indicate your child may have a vision problem. Common behavioral signs include rubbing their eyes, excessive blinking and avoiding eye contact. If you notice any of these signs, you should schedule a pediatric eye examination.

Vision Exams with our Optometrist in Fenton MO

We recommend scheduling vision exams with our optometrist in Fenton, MO prior to the start of the school year even if your child receives vision screenings at school. Vision screenings only test your child’s visual acuity, and if your child’s vision is below 20/40, the individual administering the test typically recommends visiting an optometrist for a complete diagnosis.

By contrast, our pediatric annual eye exams include tests for depth perception, tracking and teaming, color blindness and eyes that are misaligned, and if your child does have a vision problem, our optometrist can write a prescription for glasses and, if needed, recommend additional treatments, like vision therapy.
