As a parent, you want the best of everything for your child, and that includes his or her vision and ocular health. Here at Eye to Eye, we are committed attentive, expert pediatric eye care, which revolves around regular examinations, but also includes treatment for urgent matters when they arise.
A frequent question asked is when should a child come in for her or his first examination, and then when should follow up appointments be scheduled. The answer is that our kids eye care in Towson should begin by the time your child is ready to start school. At that point, he or she is going to be reading off of blackboards and from books, and it is all too easy to fall behind if vision is not up to par. Fortunately, our kids eye care in Towson makes it a priority to determine if your child needs corrective eyewear, and to prescribe the right type. In addition to school work, many other aspects of your child’s life, from social interactions to playing, are affected by how well she or he sees. It is also crucial to address any issues with eye wellness, which encompasses eye diseases like glaucoma and cataracts. Both are typically associated with adults, but children are not immune by any measure. And since both diseases develop and progress without showing any clear symptoms, it is all the more essential for your child to be examined. Other conditions, such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), double vision, and drooping eyelid will also be checked for, and treatment administered promptly if needed. You can also depend on us for skilled care in matters of accidents, injuries, infections, and other urgent eye concerns.
Our kids eye care in Towson is designed to be proactive, taking care of things now so they don’t cause bigger problems later. Contact our office to make an appointment for your child.
