Children's Eye Exams at Optiks Optometry

Your child's vision is their primary window to the world during their crucially formative years. At Optiks Optometry in Kamloops, we offer comprehensive children's eye exams that extend beyond a simple vision screening. We aim to foster healthy vision in children, laying a strong foundation for their future.

The Optiks Optometry Advantage:

Our Approach to Children’s Eye Exams

At Optiks Optometry, we deliver comprehensive eye exams tailored to our younger patients. In a child-friendly and stress-free setting, our experienced optometrists test for common vision problems, such as short-sightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hypermetropia), and squints (strabismus), among others.

During the eye examination:

  • Visual Acuity Tests:

    We assess your child's clearness of vision. Visual acuity is usually the capital "E" or pictures on the top row of a vision chart.

  • Binocular Vision Assessment:

    We evaluate how your child's eyes function together, important for depth perception and clear, comfortable vision.

  • Eye Health Examination:

    Using advanced equipment, we check all parts of your child's eyes, both the outer and inner regions, to catch any potential problems early.

Your Vision, Our Commitment

Optiks Optometry uses cutting-edge technology and personalized care to ensure the best vision care experience. We are committed to helping our patients maintain and enhance their vision so they can see life's beautiful moments.

Addressing Vision Problems in Children

If an eye exam reveals a vision problem, early intervention can improve your child's ability to function at school and in social situations. Corrective measures could include prescription glasses designed to withstand a child's active lifestyle or patching therapy for conditions like lazy eyes (amblyopia). Most childhood vision problems, when identified and treated early, can be corrected.

Incorporating Eye Care into Your Child’s Routine

Routine eye care is a significant part of safeguarding your child’s vision. At Optiks Optometry, we provide parents with the necessary advice to help incorporate eye care into their child's day-to-day life. Habits like taking breaks from digital screens, ensuring good lighting when reading, and using safety eyewear during sports can help maintain good eyesight and prevent eye injuries.
