Pediatric Exams

At Jim L. Davis, O.D. & Associates our doctors perform exams on children age 3 and up. It is important to remember that at this age your child’s sight is rapidly changing. Because of these changes it is even more imperative for them to have yearly exams. This does not include a school screening, which is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye exam done by an optometrist. Three important factors of learning that are sight dependent are recognition, comprehension and retention. Remember that your child’s development is dependent on their eye sight!

According to the American Optometric Association, signs that may indicate a child has visions problems may include:

  • Frequent eye rubbing or blinking
  • Short attention span
  • Avoiding reading and other close activities
  • Frequent headaches
  • Covering one eye
  • Tilting the head to one side
  • Holding reading materials close to the face
  • An eye turning in or out
  • Seeing double
  • Losing place when reading
  • Difficulty remembering what he or she read
