What is pediatric eye exam?

What is a Pediatric Eye Exam?

Pediatric eye exams are an essential part of your child’s routine care: they do far more than simply update your child’s vision prescription. Our pediatric optometrists check for age-specific conditions, proper growth and development, and more. We make sure to use child-friendly technology so your little one is comfortable throughout the process. Even young toddlers can benefit from pediatric eye care with us – we’re happy to see children as young as three years old!

Why Are Routine Eye Exams Important for Children?

Your child’s eyes are growing and changing at a rapid pace — and annual pediatric eye exams are the best way to make sure they’re healthy and seeing clearly. These establish a baseline for us to monitor their future eye health, and react quickly to any concerns. We also use exams to check for age-related conditions like myopia, amblyopia, and strabismus which may cause trouble learning at school – sight is essential to proper growth, development, and learning at this crucial time!

Treatments for Children’s Eyes

In the age of increased screen usage, it’s no surprise that more and more children develop dry eye and myopia (nearsightedness). We have myopia management that not only slows the progression of nearsightedness for a lifetime of better vision, it also protects against future eye diseases. And if your child has dry eye that scratches, itches, and makes their life more difficult, we have solutions that treat the root cause for both immediate and long-lasting relief.

Child-Friendly Eyewear

When you bring your child to our office, you’ll love what we have in store: we carry expressive frames your kids will love to wear, which also keep their vision clear and can stand up to your child’s busy, bumpy days. Of course, we know that kids can play rough, which is why we’re always proud to let you know about our one-year warranty – we’ll cover any manufacturer defects, scratches, or other issues for 12 months after purchase!

I visited Washington Eye Doctors for my dry eyes. Dr. Rosenblatt is awesome, he is very respectful and professional. Zero pressure when you talk to him. After the treatments, I feel absolutely better. Eye dryness is painful, and someone says it's more like a disability than a disorder. I can't agree more. Before I get the treatments, I can't even sit down and type these words for like 15 mins. Now I am not 100% recovered but at least I could work and study like a normal person. I am still using prescribed medications and I am confident that this problem is treatable. If you have dry eyes, try to contact Dr. Roosenblatt is the best advice I could give.

I have been with Washington Eye Doctors for 50 years since the Katz/Kanstroom days. They guided me through bifocals as a kid, contacts as an adolescent and Lasik as an adult. 25 years after Lasik I still have near perfect vision. I just went back for night driving glasses. Always quick, efficient and thorough consistently over the decades.

I had the best experience here! In a crunch, they were more than happy to help me get new contacts and were incredibly helpful and kind. Definitely will be going back!!

A group of kind, friendly human beings. I was visiting Washington, D.C. from out of town, ran into a bind, and this practice was able to help me so that I could drive back home. I am so thankful for their help.

The absolute best choice for dry eye! I had been suffering for years, and now my eyes are drastically better after only three months of proper treatment. Dr. Abraham is excellent. He explains things very clearly and listens to concerns with compassion. I really appreciate his help and cannot recommend Washington Eye Doctors highly enough, especially for dry eye patients.

Dr Rosenblatt has been my eye doctor for many years and worked with me to get my proper correction for nearsightedness. My extra-sensitive system was previously over-corrected and his prescriptions enabled my vision to be more relaxed and stabilize. The glasses are high quality and good fit. I’m especially fond of the nearly weightless frames and lenses.
