As one of the largest pediatric eye care practices in the Southeast, our team of pediatric eye specialists provides comprehensive eye care for children, from the detection and treatment of eye disorders to eye surgery.
Eye exams for children are extremely important to ensure that children have a normal, healthy vision and to identify any early vision problems that could affect schoolwork and daily life.
We have 9 pediatric locations in the metro Atlanta area. Click here to find a location near you and to schedule your child’s appointment.
A complete eye exam can take an hour and a half to two hours depending on the type of appointment. Depending on the nature of the visit, your child’s eye may be dilated. For a complete eye exam, their eyes will be dilated and will generally last for up to 8-12 hours, but some patients may stay dilated longer.

Please note that most new patient exams for children are medical in nature and billed to your medical insurance, not vision insurance. We ask that you take some time to fully understand the coverage and benefits of your insurance.
