Children’s Eye Exams in Loveland

Book Appointment

A Culture of Enthusiasm

Eye examinations can be intimidating and scary for young children. At 2020 EyeCare, we look at children’s exams from their perspective. We make the process engaging and make sure that we are educating while examining, so they get to know how each machine helps them see better.

Our children’s exams are enthusiastic and always positive. Getting your child excited about seeing better is the first step. We encourage them to communicate when something seems wrong. Strong vision is essential for succeeding in school, and we want to make sure that your little one has all the visual tools to be a star!

Online advertisements “to replace going to the eye doctor” are an unreliable alternative. They fail to provide accurate readings and do nothing to diagnose eye health. The online test cannot provide a recognized prescription. A visit to our clinic is the best way to keep your child healthy.

How Often Should My Child Have an Eye Exam?

Young people’s eyes change shape faster than adult’s. So receiving regular eye exams becomes even more important to keep their vision healthy. Current, accurate eye prescriptions make all the difference seeing the whiteboard and reading up close.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology has outlined a recommended children’s eye exam schedule.

Infants and toddlers should undergo their first eye examination between the ages of 6 and 9 months. 2020 EyeCare begins testing infants at the age of 3, but we will happily recommend a trusted colleague for your baby’s first eye exam.

Children should take at least one eye exam between the ages of 2-5, in what is considered the preschool years.

School children aged 6 to 19 years should undergo an eye examination annually.

The Children’s Eye Care Playbook

Our priority is making sure your children get comprehensive health care for their vision and eyes. We do this by monitoring a variety of eye functions with gentle, non-invasive technology.

Our eye doctors at 2020 EyeCare carefully check for the presence of myopia, a naturally occurring shape change in young people’s eyes. This often leads to a need for corrective eyewear.

  • Frequent eye rubbing
  • Squinting or head tilting
  • Holding reading materials very close
  • Covering one eye
  • Complaints of headaches or fatigue
  • Losing place when reading

Can My Child Wear Contacts?

Eye care for children today offers a variety of solutions to correct vision. If we determine your child requires corrective eyewear there is almost always a choice between contact lenses or eyeglasses.

Our optical dispensary stocks a ton of children’s products with a large selection of styles. At The Scleral Lens Institute of Cincinnati, we know a thing or two about contact lenses for people with delicate eyes. Be it scleral lenses or myopia-controlling contacts, we want to give your child the freedom of healthy vision.
