At Walmart Vision Center, our unique eyewear collection and professional optometry service has quickly made us a favorite in Las Vegas as the go-to specialists for complete family eye care. Dr. Paul Thompson of Walmart Vision Center understands that vision is a complex process that allows our patients to interact with the world and other individuals. The health of your visual system, including visual acuity, visual efficiency, and visual information processing, is particularly important for young children who are just beginning to develop and learn essential vision-related skills. At Walmart Vision Center, our Rancho Springs eye doctors specialize in pediatric eye care, attune with the specific needs and demands of children’s eye care.
Did you know that nearly ten percent of preschoolers and twenty-five percent of school-aged children have vision problems? With these astounding statistics, you can understand why our Rancho Springs family eye doctors at Walmart Vision Center stress the importance of yearly eye examinations. Although infants may not be able to accurately decipher or read an eye chart, a typical visual acuity measure test, our eye doctors utilize specialized procedures to measure the clarity of your child’s eyesight that does not require verbalizing. Much like an adult eye examination, your child will receive a complete eye evaluation with our licensed Rancho Springs optometrists, which assesses their visual acuity, eye tracking, eye focusing, eye teaming, hand-eye coordination, as well as the health of their eye’s internal structures. Many pediatric vision problems, from nearsightedness and farsightedness to amblyopia and strabismus can be more successfully treated or managed with early diagnosis. If your child has not received a comprehensive eye exam with a licensed Rancho Springs family optometrist, such as Dr. Paul Thompson, bring them to your local Walmart Vision Center for an appointment today!
