Children need regular eye exams, too! According to the American Optometric Association, children should be examined by an eye doctor just before they enter kindergartern or first grade (ages 5-6) and every two years thereafter for regular check-ups. Remember, an appropriate vision assessment at an early age can ultimately be vital in terms of how well your child performs in school. A child who is unable to see print or view a blackboard will become easily frustrated, leading to poor performance in school work.
Primary Eyecare Kids examines children 5 and older for comprehensive vision and ocular health assessments. With a large selection of children's glasses and great doctors on-staff who enjoy working with kids, Primary Eyecare is a wonderful place to bring your school-age child for his or her eye examination.
In addition to our large selection of children's eyewear, we also have options for protective sports eyewear, including stylish, custom-made children's sports goggles. Stop by The Optical at Primary Eyecare to view some of our great kids' eyewear, or contact us for an appointment for your child aged 5 and up.
