Beyond School Vision Screenings

While school vision checks are helpful, they mainly look for common eye problems. Book a pediatric eye exam with us to ensure a thorough examination.

Our pediatric optometrist conducts a thorough assessment, including tests for binocularity, refractive error, color perception, visual acuity, and overall eye health.
