Sunrise Optical, your local Cliffside Park eye doctor office, has been proudly serving the community with expert and friendly eye care for years. We are dedicated to the visual health for our patients. And because vision is so precious we offer pediatric eye exams for our young patients. It’s never too early to start caring for your eyes. It’s recommend, starting at the age of four, that children should have an annual screening with a pediatric eye doctor. At the age of five, prior to starting school, each child should have a comprehensive eye examination to test for any deficiencies or developmental problems.
Pediatric eye exams will help to determine if your child has any development problems in the eyes that could affect other developmental issues and create learning problems as they grow. There are some signs that your child may have a vision problem: from constant eye rubbing, to light sensitivity and poor focusing. These are signs that you can look for at home to determine if there may be a larger vision issue to be looked at by your local Cliffside Park eye doctor. Also make sure to ask your child and their teacher if they are having difficulty reading the blackboard at school. Are they squinting? Having trouble reading or learning? If the answer is yes to any of these questions it could be a vision problem and not a learning disability that is bothering your child.
If your child experiences any of the symptoms above you should make an appointment for a pediatric eye exam at your local Cliffside Park eye doctor as soon as possible. Vision is precious and if gone untreated can get worse, leading to larger and more untreatable health and development problems. At Sunrise Optical our dedicated staff is committed to the visual health of our young patients. We have created a welcoming and friendly environment where all patients will feel welcome and safe and receive the quality and individualized care they deserve. At our Cliffside Park optometry office we know how important it is to see and with yearly pediatric eye exams at Sunrise Optical you will be taking the necessary step to ensure your child has healthy vision, long into the future.
