What to Expect

Once you have scheduled an appointment for your child, here are a few things to consider when arriving for your appointment:

  • Bring any and all medications your child is taking.
  • Bring any information or notes from school indicating problems.
  • Bring reports from any other healthcare providers.
  • Try to avoid bringing any other children with you on the day of the appointment.
  • If you must bring other children with you, arrange to bring another adult to accompany that child in our waiting area.

It is standard of care to dilate children under the age of 12 years old on first examination and yearly thereafter. Your child will likely have drops put in their eyes. This is important for a thorough eye-health and vision examination. We will need your undivided attention during the examination as well as that of your child, therefore, we ask that no other children be brought to the examination room, if at all possible.

Once the management plan is conceived, our doctors work with you in order to guide your child's developing visual process. We may also work with other doctors within optometry and with other disciplines to allow your child to reach his/her full potential.
