Our passion is children’s vision and ensuring that your child develops vision and all of the visual skills necessary for school, sports, and their life journey. If you catch us singing “Wheels on the Bus” while checking your baby’s eyes or giving out “Summit Bucks” for our prize counter, it’s all part of making sure that your child has a blast coming to our office.
More importantly, we are committed to making sure your child has the vision they need for proper development. Vision must develop in infants and children just like speech, motor and other systems. However, often there are not obvious milestones like rolling over, crawling, or a first word to know if a child is on track. Furthermore, according to the American Optometric Association, vision screenings miss up to 60% of children with vision problems. Even if your child passed a school screening or eye chart test at the pediatrician, a comprehensive eye examination is crucial to test for important visual skills like eye tracking, focusing, and teaming.
