Is your child prepared for the school year?
Remember to get...
a new backpack
your children's eyes examined as part of their back-to-school checklist.
Did you know? - Many parents think the eye screening given at school or the pediatrician's office is good enough to detect vision and eye health problems. In reality, this type of vision screening will leave most vision and eye health issues undetected.
Eye Exams for Kids and Teens - We are specially equipped to perform eye exams without making them intimidating. We use a calm and friendly approach and we make the tests fun. From special eye charts with pictures to superfast eye testing machines that take the guess work out of vision tests, we cater to kids and teens. We've made accommodations to our office and our eye exam to see kids of all abilities.
Explanations for Parents - We take the time to talk to you about your child's visual development, explain vision problems and provide you with treatment options.
During a child's first 12 years, 80 percent of all learning comes through vision.
With proper vision, children enter school ready to gain knowledge and skills that will remain with them their entire lives.
How well a child can see will have a great impact on how much and how quickly they will learn.
A professional eye exam is critical for early detection of vision and eye problems. A child's first eye exam at 3 years of age provides a baseline for comparision to future back-to-school exams, which should be annually through age 18.
Glasses are Cool! - We have lots of frames that look cool and fit well so kids actually love their glasses! We use durable products and recommend safe polycarbonate lenses plus we have a great warranty program -- but kids will be kids and we are always here to repair glasses when needed.
Contact Lenses are Awesome! - Contact lenses have changed and are safer and more convenient than ever. A great option for younger children, disposable contacts take the worry out of losing lenses. We even fit lenses that are thrown away after each day of use! Personal appearance and self-esteem are important factors in a child's development and many kids and teens are thrilled with the idea of not wearing glasses. Contacts are a great option for sports and other activities. An easy, in-office, evaluation can tell us if your child is ready.
An interdisciplinary approach - Because of our expertise in children's eye care, Dr. Stephen Rothbloom has been selected as the low vision consultant for the Cobb, Douglas and Paulding County School Systems. If your child's vision problems are affecting school performance or creating behavior issues, we will work in cooperation with teachers, other school professionals and pediatricians as directed by you.
