If you are looking for a top-notch vision practice where your child can receive pediatric eye testing, we urge you to visit us at Trang Tran, OD & Esther Tan, OD. At our vision practice our two top-notch optometrists, D. Trang T. Tran and Dr. Esther H. Tan, can provide your child with a complete pediatric eye exam in Paradise.
It is important that children have pediatric eye exams so that any developing vision problems will be caught early. Even if your child received a vision screening at school, they most likely did not have their eyes thoroughly tested. Generally, in school your child’s eyes will only be tested to make sure they can see clearly at a distance. In fact, often when a child has vision problems they do not even think to mention it to their parents. For this reason, many vision problems go on undiagnosed. In fact, some children are thought to have learning disabilities when what they actually have are vision problems. When our eye doctor provides your child with a pediatric eye exam in Paradise, he or she will test your child’s eyes for many different types of vision problems. Your child’s visual acuity will be tested to make sure they can see clearly without eyeglasses. However, if it is determined that your child has astigmatism or is nearsighted or farsighted, our eye doctor can write a vision prescription which will have them seeing clearly. During our pediatric eye exams, your child’s eyes will be screened to make sure they are not suffering from common childhood vision problems such as lazy eye or wandering eyes. If either of these conditions are diagnosed, either our optometrist will provide treatment or you will be referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist for the advanced care that your child needs. During our eye exams, your child’s eyes will also be tested for binocular vision, focusing, peripheral vision, color vision, and eye tracking.
