Pediatric Eye Care in Atlanta

Regular eye exams for children are crucial in safeguarding their visual health and ensuring optimal academic performance. These pediatric examinations play a pivotal role in detecting any underlying vision issues that might impede their ability to learn effectively or compromise their safety. 

It is recommended that children undergo their initial comprehensive eye examination at 6 months of age, followed by subsequent exams at 3 years old and again at 5 or 6 years old. For school-aged children who do not require vision correction, regular pediatric eye exams should be conducted at least every two years to monitor their visual health and ensure early detection of any potential issues. 

Pediatric Eye Care: Ensuring Comprehensive Vision in Atlanta

At Thomas Eye Group, we recognize the unpredictability that comes with having a little one. That is why we offer a diverse range of services to make your life easier and bring joy to your child’s day. From a wide selection of eyewear designed for children of all ages and budgets to a fun-filled environment featuring movie theaters and play areas, we strive to create a welcoming space for children in the Metro Atlanta community. 

Please allocate approximately 1.5-2 hours for your child’s comprehensive eye examination. To facilitate a thorough assessment, your child’s eyes may be dilated, enhancing the doctor’s ability to examine the inner structures of the eyes. 

Important things to note:

  • Pupil dilation can persist for 8 hours or more following the exam.
  • During this time, your child may experience increased sensitivity to light and difficulty focusing on nearby objects.
  • We recommend bringing sunglasses and allowing extra time to accommodate these potential effects.
