Unlike adults, children often can't tell if they have a vision problem. Regardless of their ability to communicate, we are able to use techniques and specialty equipment to determine if your child has a visual issue. And remember: not all vision issues are related to their ability to see things far away! Our child eye exam will screen for sharpness of vision, ability to focus the eyes, eye alignment, eye health and other conditions that contribute to visual comfort (ie. headaches) and efficiency (ie. reading up to potential).
Routine eye exams are first recommended between 6-12 months old, then yearly after the age of 3 (we like to skip the fussy 2 year old stage as those are our least productive years - unless there is a concern noted). Examinations under the age of 2 are covered fully under MSP benefits. Between the 2-18 years old, the private pay/insurance cost is $25.
Dr. Vinge has a specialization in pediatrics and 3 young children - eye exams are fun and interactive! Dr. Moore also enjoys working with children and has a secret stash of stickers in her drawer.
Between the ages of 19 and 64, comprehensive eye exams are recommended every 2 years. Due to the increased prevalence of eye disease over the age of 65, eye exams are completed on a yearly basis. Our routine eye exams include a binocular screening (how the two eyes work together), prescription/glasses determination, corneal health check and dilated retinal exam. It is always best to be proactive instead of reactive with your eye health! Catching eye issues early can prevent vision loss, headaches, and eyestrain.
Most adult eye exams are 30-45 minutes. Dilation drops are a recommended part of a complete eye exam as well, since it will allow the optometrist to screen for cataracts and peripheral eye disease. Please bring any glasses, contact lens boxes and sunglasses to your appointment.
