Visit MezMerEyes Optical for Comprehensive Eye Care

The good news is that there is a lot you can do to protect your family’s eye health, and it starts with a comprehensive eye exam!

Pediatric Eye Exams Are Essential to Eye Development

Eye exams for kids address many of the same issues as comprehensive exams for adults. For children who are growing and learning at exponential rates, it’s especially essential to keep up with eye health, changes in prescriptions, and examinations to ensure that their eye development is on track.

A child with unaddressed vision problems may have trouble learning in school and could be at risk of falling behind academically. Simple vision screenings help, but they aren’t enough to solve all eye problems that can be identified and addressed with a thorough eye exam.

Poor Vision Can Cause Many Issues for All Ages

Vision problems can affect more than your eyes. In children, you may notice trouble reading or behavior problems in school or at home. Adults may experience frequent headaches, eyestrain, or a feeling of dryness.

Digital Device Use Means Eyes Needs Special Protection

Kids and adults use screens for school, work, and leisure time. Therefore, protecting your eyes while using your devices is essential to ensure you see correctly and do not develop eye strain.

It’s also a good idea to look at how close you are holding your device to your eyes and use blue-light-blocking settings (or lenses customized to make screen light easier on your eyes).

Catch Problems Early by Seeing Your Eye Doctor in Crystal River

A yearly eye exam should do more than check your eye’s ability to see. Your annual exam allows your eye doctor to look at the overall health of your eyes, evaluating for symptoms of the following conditions:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Dry eyes
  • Macular degeneration

MezMerEyes Optical and True Eye Experts are also dedicated to screening infants and young children to ensure they get the necessary care. For example, early detection of amblyopia (before age 7) is crucial to the child’s eye health and development.

Recommendations for Contacts, Glasses, and Further Care

We offer many options for vision correction after your eye exam at MezMerEyes Optical, p. In addition, our expert optical staff can help recommend glasses that fit your lifestyle specifically catered to eye health, refractive errors, and more.

Everyone needs a backup pair of glasses – even if you have contact lenses. If your child is the patient, we’ll take into account your child’s age and ability to transition from glasses to contact lenses.

If necessary, we can refer you or your child to a local ophthalmologist to discuss other vision correction options. We have a vast network of care in this area, and we maintain connections with specialists that serve patients with macular degeneration, retinal issues, glaucoma, and cataracts as well.
