Adults must visit an eye doctor at least once a year for a regular check-up. It's also vital for kids to receive regular eye care as they are still growing. Our pediatric eye doctor, Dr. Thomas Piorkowski, can also provide eye care for adults. If you are looking for a good optometrist in Springfield, you should go with Dr. Piorkowski at our practice.
Pediatric Eye Exams
An eye exam for a child is similar to an adult eye exam for an adult. However, pediatric eye exams can be challenging since children might become upset due to parts of the exam and cannot focus as quickly. That is why our family eye doctor will look for various eye conditions, such as lazy eye and strabismus.
Our optometrist will tell you that strabismus is similar to a lazy eye, which occurs when one eye is turned in a different direction. We usually diagnose strabismus in children ages 1-4, which the children's parents or parents can pass down. Nerve issues and weak eye muscles can also cause strabismus.
However, eye exams involve more than just checking your child for eye conditions. We also check your child's peripheral vision, color vision, focusing, and more. These are critical skills for learning and life. We will inform you about the results of this part of the eye exam and any actions that you should take due to these results.
Eyeglasses for Your Child
We can also provide eyeglasses for your child. We will determine whether your child could benefit from eyeglasses and what is best for them. In addition, we can provide eyeglasses to combat myopia. You can stop by our offices in Springfield or Chadds Ford, PA, or Holmes. We will give you more information about the eyeglasses we offer for children.
