Children’s Eye Exams at White Oaks Optometry

Our children’s eye exams use innovative techniques to focus on the details of your child’s eye health.

During a children’s eye exam, we pay special attention to eye tracking and overall health. We evaluate your child’s ability to follow objects with their eyes, perceive depth and colour, and identify shapes. We also check for any underlying health conditions that may affect their vision.

Making Eye Exams Interactive

At White Oaks Optometry, we’re passionate about helping your kids achieve clear, healthy vision. To do so, our team works to create an interactive and engaging exam experience to help make eye care an experience that your kids can look forward to.

Through different techniques and tools, we can help get to the bottom of your child’s visual needs.

Training Paddles for Preferential Viewing

We use paddles with grading signs to check preferential viewing in infants and toddlers. This technique helps us determine if there are any refractive errors or other issues affecting their vision. We can then prescribe corrective measures to improve their eyesight.

We understand that children may feel anxious during eye exams, so we want to make the process as fun and engaging as possible! We use toys, videos, and automated screen fixation targets to keep your child entertained and focused during the exam.

Our team uses different technology to examine your child’s eyes. We use autorefractors to measure their refractive error and fundus photography, which is a form of retinal imaging, to capture detailed images of the inside of their eyes. These tools allow us to provide accurate diagnoses and recommend appropriate treatment options.

Customized, Tailored Exams

We understand that the type of exam required for each child varies depending on their age, health, and individual needs.

For infants and toddlers, we offer exams that focus on assessing their visual development and overall eye health. We even offer pink eye care for children. 

As children grow older, our exams become more comprehensive and tailored to their unique needs. We take into consideration factors like their school performance, family history of eye conditions, and any specific concerns they may have.

Every Child Is Unique

We understand that every child is different, and we take the time to tailor our exams to their unique needs. Our goal is to provide personalized care that helps your child’s vision develop properly and address potential issues promptly.

Contact us to schedule an appointment today and get a head start on your child’s visual health.
