Children’s Vision

wyattAs one of the five senses, vision is an important part of your child’s growth. If your child is in school and unable to see the information that is presented visually, they may be at risk of having their academic performance negatively affected.

Be sure that your child gets routine eye exams to detect any signs of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism so that any treatment may be addressed early on with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Routine exams also make sure that your child has healthy eyes, important for their vision development.

Infant Vision

FREE Infant Eye Exams to all children under the age of 18 months are available at Fulton EyeCare Center. Dr. Fulton encourages mothers and fathers to bring their infant in for an exam, and advises that many eye development issues are correctable if discovered at an early age. Since 80% of what a child learns at infant stage is through his eyes, poor eye health can be detrimental to a child’s development. An infant eye exam is a key factor in the success of a baby wellness plan.

Protect the vision of your family from the very beginning; take advantage of the Free Infant Eye Exams at Fulton EyeCare Center. Come in and meet the caring, family-friendly staff members who make sure you are comfortable, and informed, about the total eye health needs of your family.
