CHILDREN’S EYE EXAMS
Your child’s ocular health is incredibly important. If left uncorrected, poor vision in children can lead to a number of health, safety, and learning problems. Eighty percent of the material taught in school is presented in visual form. Identifying and managing vision problems early can help children to excel in school, sports, and social interactions. Uncovering any potential eye health problems early will help your child grow, learn, and play comfortably and safely.
We generally suggest that children as young as six come in for an eye exam. The appointment will be organized based on your child’s age and needs. Typically, we perform vision, eye alignment, and eye health tests to determine whether your child needs eyeglasses.
Glaucoma, Cataracts, and Other Eye Diseases
The licensed and board-certified eye doctor at our Austin practice specializes in diagnosing, monitoring, and treating a number of eye conditions. Using the most advanced diagnostic technology, Dr. Kitchen can test for disorders such as glaucoma and cataracts. Based on the results of these tests, we may prescribe medication, perform minor surgery or pre- and post-operative care, or refer you to an eye surgeon or physician.
