Children’s Vision

The American Optometric Association ( recommends that a child have their first eye exam between 6 to 12 months of age.  Dr. Brown welcomes babies and young children to her practice.

Dr. Brown will test for excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and eye movement ability as well as eye health problems.  

The American Optometric Association believes that an eye/vision assessment conducted as part of a preschool or school physical or a vision screening in the public or private schools cannot substitute for regular professional care.  Nearly 33% of vision problems in children are missed at even the best of screenings.

It is estimated that nearly 25% of school-age children have vision problems.  

All children should receive a comprehensive eye and vision examination assessing and treating any deficiencies in ocular health, visual acuity, refractive status, oculomotility and binocular vision prior to entering school and every year after.
