It’s not always an easy task to take your child to a doctor’s office. Here at the office of Trang Tran, OD & Esther Tan, OD, we make our pediatric eye exam in Paradise a pleasant and non-threatening experience. Children should get a complete eye examination at our office before starting school and then at least once every two years after that.
Our pediatric eye exam in Paradise includes both a checkup of the various parts of your child’s eyes, as well as testing to determine how well she or he sees. If your child needs eyeglasses for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you will get a prescription for them. Various eye conditions, such as glaucoma and cataracts, are applicable to children as well as adults. Others, including drooping eyelid, amblyopia (lazy eye), and strabismus (crossed eyes), are specific to kids. In any case, it is important to detect the problem early so that the appropriate treatment can be identified and implemented. For testing your child’s vision, our pediatric eye exam in Paradise will have your child read from an eye chart. But if he or she is not old enough to read, the tumbling E game is a very effective alternative. A series of E’s are presented and your child will say in which direction it is pointing. And if glasses are needed, you will find a host of great designer frames from which to choose. Your child may end up looking forward to wearing them. And best of all, we maintain a fun and welcoming environment. Your child will feel at ease. And aside from a minor sting from the application of dilating eye drops, there is nothing uncomfortable about our eye testing.
Be sure that your child’s eye wellness and optimal vision are being cared for. Schedule an appointment at our office. Call us right now.
