At Ste. Genevieve Vision Care we provide care to all ages and every member of your family including infants and school age children. We take pride in providing preventative eye care so that your children never have to suffer with an undiagnosed vision problem. Early detection of vision problems in children is crucial to ensure success in school and to prevent potential loss of vision or function in adulthood.
The American Optometric Association
asserts infants should have their first eye exam between 6-12 months
of age and if there are no concerns again at age 3, again before
kindergarten, and yearly there after. Our eye doctors are comfortable
examining children as young as 6 months old. The exam is
non-intimidating and based on play and interaction with your doctor. Your doctor will review all findings and any concerns with you and
recommend an appropriate follow-up schedule. He or she is also happy
to communicate with your pediatrician so that he or she can have the
whole picture of your child's development.
