Supporting Your Child’s Sight as They Grow

Whether your child is playing with friends or learning in the classroom, they depend on their vision to experience the world around them.

River City Vision Center understands how important your child’s vision is, and we’re ready to support them with understanding, compassion, and unique strategies. Book your child’s next eye exam today and see how we’re ready to help them see and experience more!

When to Have an Eye Exam

At River City Vision Center, we start seeing our littlest patients at 7 years old. By this time, your child is using their vision for numerous activities, like reading, playing, solving problems, and more.

School is such an important time in your child’s life, and detecting potential problems as early as possible can help preserve their vision quality and enjoy their lifestyle. Please bring your child in for an eye exam at least every year so we can support their sight throughout their life and as their needs change.

How We Can Help

We approach every patient, even our smallest ones, with a unique sense of compassion and understanding. We know that a doctor’s appointment can make any child a little nervous, but you can always count on our team to ensure your child’s experience is as comfortable as it is comprehensive.

Even if you are unsure your child has an eye or vision problem, you may be able to notice some signs just by looking at their behavior, like:

  • Struggling with school assignments
  • Squinting
  • Regular headaches
  • Short attention spans
  • Trouble playing sports
  • Head tilting
  • Double vision

These can signify a number of issues, but we can help determine what is causing them during an eye exam.

Eye Health Assessments

Eye health assessments give us a clear view of your child’s eye health. We will also consider their family health history to determine if they have a higher risk of certain eye and vision problems.

Seeing clearly is an essential part of your child’s quality of life, so we take great care in checking your child’s visual quality during an eye exam.

One of the most common issues children can develop is myopia, also known as nearsightedness. Myopia affects the quality of your child’s distance vision and can progress as they grow. In some cases, myopia may make it difficult for your child to see class boards, play sports, or even watch television at home.

Please visit our Myopia Control page for more information about how we can help manage this issue.

Every child is different, so we are prepared to develop unique strategies to help preserve your child’s eye health and vision.

In some cases, though, a fun pair of eyeglasses or comfortable contact lenses are all your child may need to enjoy their vision! We carry a beautiful line of frames suitable for all ages and lifestyles, and certain contact lenses we offer could help address specific vision problems.
