Kids Eye Exam
At Gahanna Vision Center kids come first. As a strong believer of proper eye care for young children, Dr. Miller has worked with many local physicians and pediatricians promoting this belief. He has urged and educated many physicians, school administrators and parents alike that a child must have a comprehensive eye exam no later than age 3. In fact, the American Optometric Association recommends that children have their first eye exam by an optometrist by age 1. The important facts to remember when deciding if your child is old enough for a visit to Gahanna Vision Center are:
- Reading a chart at school or at the pediatrician's office is not an eye exam, it is a vision screening. Your child should have their first complete eye exam by an optometrist no later than the age of 3.
- Eye conditions that are common in kids, such as Amblyopia, must by diagnosed and treated by the age of 5 to offer the greatest chance of improvement. - what is amblyopia?
- Many kids with eye conditions do not have any symptoms, and typically have adaquate vision. Our doctors at Gahanna Vision Center are trained to identify and properly treat these conditions so your child can leave a healthy and visually fulfilling life.
- Dr. Miller completed his Pediatric Eye Care training at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia, PA. There he trained under many leaders in the field of pediatric vision disorders.
