We are excited to offer a separate lobby and exam rooms dedicated to children.
Dr. Pittman has a special interest in children's vision because 80% of a child's learning during the first twelve years of life involves the eyes. Vision involves much more than simply reading 20/20 on the pediatrician's or school nurse's eye chart. Experts state that 25% of school age children experience vision problems. If your child is struggling with schoolwork, this could be an indication of a vision problem. Early identification of a child's vision problem is crucial. If left untreated, some childhood vision problems can cause permanent vision loss.
During your child's pediatric eye exam, we will preform a complete health check of the eye in addition to specific vision tests tailored to the child's individual needs and age.
