Did you know 80% of all learning is done through vision?


Good vision is a crucial part in your child’s success in school. With the first day of school coming right around the corner, it is important to send your child back to school seeing clearly! You can view our hours here.

Regular eye exams are recommended for everyone at least once a year. Our vision naturally changes with age, which makes regular eye exams crucial. 95% of vision problems in kids can be fixed if detected early. Here are some signs your child may be experiencing vision impairment:
  •  Loses place while reading 
  • Avoids tasks that require good vision
  • Frequent squinting or eye- rubbing while reading or watching television
  • Repeated shutting or covering of one eye
  • Holds a book closer than normal 
  • Uses finger to maintain place while reading
