Children’s Exams

We Care About Your Child’s Eye Health

Children are required to undergo vision screening before starting school. Children who do not pass their vision screening exam need a comprehensive vision exam. If conditions such as a lazy eye are not identified during early childhood, there can be permanent loss of vision.

Dr. Barbara Evans enjoys seeing children age 4 and older to identify and recommend treatments for children with vision impairments.

What to Expect During a Child’s Eye Exam

Dr. Evans takes extra care when working with children as we know it can sometimes be a trying experience for both children and parents.  She performs comprehensive eye exams which include a questionnaire for you about your child’s past medical history and vision issues, age-appropriate vision testing, checking pupils and extraocular muscles, and a detailed exam of the eyes from front to back, including a dilated exam.

Dr. Evans enjoys helping ensure that your child has the best potential vision to grow, learn and thrive.
