Eye Care for Children / Pediatric Eye Exams

Serving Patients in Troy, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Royal Oak and Clawson, MI

Does my child need glasses?

When should my child have her first eye exam?

Can my child’s droopy eyelids be corrected?

For the answers to these questions and others you might have, our doctors are trained to correctly diagnose their pediatric patients’ eyes and successfully care for their needs. Our doctors are well-versed in the issues that children’s eyes are susceptible to.

We recommend that children have their first eye exam at age 5. Pediatricians do a great job of screening children which catches many problems early, however a comprehensive exam is recommended. Regardless of age we can do a thorough eye exam and determine an accurate glasses prescription if needed.

Comprehensive eye exams are so important in order to detect a lazy eye. The medical term for a lazy eye is amblyopia. This is a condition which is fairly common and can only be corrected if caught and treated before age 8. Sometimes there are little to no symptoms of amblyopia and only an eye exam can detect it.
