It's true, kids are covered for eye exams until the age of 19
and we have made it our mission to make sure that everyone knows
this so we can ensure happy eyes for children everywhere!
Why Your Child Should Get Annual Eye Exams
Vision can affect your kids performance in school. Roughly 80% of a child's learning is visual.
INCREASED SCREEN TIME
The recent increase in a child's screen time puts them at risk for developing a condition known as Myopia (near-sightedness).
Eye Exams can detect serious vision conditions, which can be corrected early.

I PREFER TO BE CONTACTED TO SCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT VIA TEXT
My daughter came in with an eye infection. She usually wears contacts but obviously couldn't as her eye heals. Of course she broke her glasses the week before. They helped us find a pair that they had in stock and gave us as close a prescription as they could until her actual lenses came in the following week. We thought she would just have to go without which would not have been good with her poor eyesight.
