There is one thing that is a virtual certainly when it comes to parents and children: you want the very best for them. And with our kids eyewear, we at the office of Paul Thompson, OD can assure you that you will get exactly that.
Your child’s quality of eyesight is closely associated with being able to read well, doing well in school, using a computer, social development, playing sports, and having fun with video games. All of the above are of value to one degree of other to all kids, and that’s why we recommend that you come in with your child for an eye examination by the time she or he is ready to begin school. After that, one visit every two years is usually enough. Your child may be nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or some combination of those three refractive conditions. So no matter if he or she needs single vision glasses, bifocal, or trifocal, we can supply it with our Las Vegas children’s eyewear. Our optometrist determines the ideal prescription and writes it out. Then our optical department puts the prescription in the lenses, for your convenience. All that’s left then is the fun part. Kids certainly seem to enjoy selecting the frames that complete our Las Vegas children’s eyewear. Not only the size, but the styles, shapes, and colors are designed especially to suit the tastes of young children. It means a lot when he or she is excited about the idea of glasses instead of resistant to it. And with the brands we have available, she or he is certain to find ones that are perfect.
Contact our office so that we can arrange a time for you to bring your child in for an eye exam and (if necessary) get our Las Vegas children’s eyewear.

Pediatric Vision Problems Las Vegas
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!
