Eye exams are important for everyone, even young children. Kids can have their first eye exams starting at six months old. At Luke Eye Associates in Midland, TX, our optometry team provides eye and vision exams to ensure your child’s eyes are healthy. Here are some commonly asked questions about pediatric eye exams.

How often should I take my child to the optometrist?

If you want the best for your kids, it's essential to see our optometrist at least annually. Since your child's eyes are developing rapidly, you need our eye specialist to monitor progression and administer any corrective action at an early stage. Your child may need a new prescription and or new frames for glasses. We can also detect eye health issues early on with an eye exam.

What is involved in a vision exam?

Our pediatric eye exam includes checking for reflective responses and the general health of the eyes. Our optometrist will conduct a range of different tests to rule out any abnormalities that may damage your child’s vision.

If your child can read, our eye doctor may use this to evaluate the sharpness of your young one's vision. If necessary, we will prescribe eyeglasses and teach your child how to wear them.  

Can I get glasses for my child after an exam?

Yes. Our optometry team is ready to discuss with you the different options to correct your kid's vision depending on lifestyle and other needs. We will talk with you about the different kinds of frames and glasses lenses available and how your child should care for them. We will also fit them for your child’s face.
