Children's Eye Exams Q & A

Why does my child need an eye exam?

Like adults, children need regular eye exams to ensure their eyes are healthy. It’s important your child sees a qualified pediatric eye doctor like Dr. Toyzer because there are certain eye conditions that are more common in children than adults. These conditions include:

  • Strabismus -- a condition that affects the eye’s ability to focus on the same image
  • Amblyopia -- often referred to as “lazy eye”
  • Refractive errors -- commonly called nearsightedness and farsightedness

By keeping up with your child’s regular eye exams, you can also ensure your child stays focused in school, and performs well in sports or other extracurricular activities.

What happens at my child’s eye exam?

During your child’s comprehensive eye exam at The Eye Doctors, Dr. Toyzer may:

  • Exam their eye muscles and eyelids
  • Look at the retina or the back of their eye
  • Test their corneal light reflex
  • Test their eye shifting
  • Test their visual acuity

Dr. Toyzer wants to make each child feel safe and comfortable during their eye exam, and the staff is trained to provide the best pediatric care.

If you have specific questions about your child’s eye health, feel free to discuss them with Dr. Toyzer during your child’s appointment.

What should I look for in a pediatric optometrist?

It's vital that your child's eye doctor has a background working with children. Pediatric eye doctors have the training and education necessary to properly identify and diagnose problems that are common to young eyes.

Since children’s bodies and eyes are constantly growing and changing, regular eye exams are a critical part of making sure you support your child’s full development. Dr. Toyzer and his team have a reputation for being thorough, compassionate, and trustworthy caretakers of your child’s health.
