Specialized Pediatric Optometrists

Our optometrists specialize in pediatric eye care, understanding the unique needs and challenges associated with children’s vision. Their expertise ensures a comprehensive and patient-centered approach to every examination.

Age-Appropriate Testing

We utilize child-friendly testing methods to assess visual acuity, eye coordination, depth perception, and color vision. Our approach is tailored to the child’s age and level of understanding, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

Vision Screening and Eye Health Evaluation

We conduct detailed vision screenings to detect refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Additionally, we evaluate eye health, checking for conditions such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), and focusing issues.

Behavioral Optometry Techniques

For younger children who may not yet be able to read or communicate effectively, we employ behavioral optometry techniques, such as using age-appropriate visual stimuli, to assess their vision accurately.

Vision Therapy Consultation

If vision problems are detected, our pediatric optometrists provide consultations for vision therapy. This specialized approach addresses issues like eye teaming problems and focusing difficulties, enhancing visual skills crucial for learning and development.

Parental Involvement and Education

We encourage parental involvement during the examination process. Our optometrists take the time to explain the results and any necessary treatments, providing valuable insights into your child’s eye health. We also offer guidance on visual hygiene and preventive measures.

Preschool Vision Screening Programs

ABQ Eye Care actively participates in community-based preschool vision screening programs, aiming to detect and address vision problems early in children’s lives. We collaborate with parents and educators to ensure every child receives the vision care they deserve.
