Vision Exams for Children

The American Optometric Association recommends that pre-school children receive a complete vision exam at the ages of six months, three years and five years. It is particularly important that a child have a complete evaluation in the summer prior to entry into Kindergarten. While in school, yearly evaluations are recommended. It is not necessary for the child to verbally respond in order to do an evaluation. The American Optometric Association (AOA) and The Vision Care Institute of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., have partnered to create InfantSEE®, a no-cost public health program developed to provide professional eye care for infants nationwide. Through InfantSEE®, Dr Grant will provide a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment to infants in their first year of life, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income. For more information on InfantSEE®, go to http://www.aoa.org/infantsee.xml

What to expect on the first appointment

We strive to make your visit as enjoyable and pleasant as possible. In order to get a good eye health evaluation, Dr. Grant will most likely want to dilate your eyes. This can cause blurred vision and light sensitivity so make sure to bring your sunglasses or we will give you some. Your visit will take at least 1.5 hrs if your eyes are dilated.

In order for you and or your child to receive full attention, please refrain from bringing other siblings to the appointment.

Additional visits beyond the basic exam may be necessary if

  • more information is needed than what can be attained during the basic exam
  • you or your child has special needs or concerns
  • your child is struggling in school he/she may need a visual processing evaluation.
  • You or the patient have had a head injury or stroke
