Pediatric Eye Exams
Does your child feel anxious about doctor appointments? Dr. McCulley puts children at ease and talks directly to them without making them feel rushed or nervous. Most kids tell us eye exams are fun!
Dr. McCulley will work with your child to find out how well they see, and if glasses are required to help them see better.
Eye Muscle Evaluation, Including Eye Turns (Lazy Eye)
This includes testing with lenses or prisms, “magic” glasses, and checking how the eyes align. Dr. McCulley also tests eye tracking movements.
Depth Perception and Color Vision Testing
Children are asked to put on another pair of “magic” glasses, which act similar to 3D glasses. They are shown a book and asked what they see. This tests depth perception.
Eye Health Examination
Dr. McCulley will evaluate the health of the structures of the eye. Occasionally, drops are required to dilate the eyes.
Vision care is essential to every child’s growth, development, and overall health. The American Optometric Association recommends children receive their first eye exam between the ages of 6 months to one year. Through the InfantSEE program, Dr. McCulley provides an eye exam for infants in their first year of life at no cost. Dr. McCulley will examine your infant’s visual acuity, eye movement, eye alignment, eye health and family history. Early detection of eye conditions is critical to your child’s health, wellbeing and learning. Taking your child in for an InfantSEE exam with Dr. McCulley is a great first step for your child’s vision development.
