When your family’s schedule is always so packed, it may be difficult to factor in your child’s eye examination. You are diligent about check ups and doctor’s visits, and you may think that that is enough, but taking your child to an optometrist specialist can help aid in his or her health enormously. At the optometry practice of Dr. Paul Thompson, our Rancho Oakley optometrist and friendly staff are specialists in administering pediatric eye exams, and focus on making you and your child feel safe, and welcome. Your visit to our office will be a pleasant and valuable one.
Eye exams are a crucial component of maintaining your child’s overall health. Twenty five percent of school-aged children have vision problems. If your child has never had an eye exam, or if you can hardly even remember when his or her last exam was, taking this precaution could better every aspect of your child’s life! Failing to take your child to an optometrist as often as suggested increases the risk of not catching developing eye diseases. Children, even babies, can develop many of the same serious eye diseases and infections that harm adults. Many of these don’t have any visible symptoms, making it especially important to be evaluated by a professional, like our Rancho Oakley optometrist. We understand that taking your child to any new doctor can be unsettling, which is why Paul Thompson, OD of Walmart Vision Center, our professional staff is experienced in pediatric eye exams, and making the whole family feel comfortable.
Ensuring that your child has the proper eyeglass prescription can have tremendous effects on their confidence and performance in school and sports. You may have no idea if your child is struggling to see their homework, or the blackboard clearly. They might not even understand that imperfect or blurry vision is abnormal, and can be fixed! Our Rancho Oakley optometrist, Doctor Paul Thompson, has been aiding patients of all ages in acquiring their proper eyeglass prescription. We welcome you and your whole family to come visit our office, and experience the friendly atmosphere that we take pride in providing. To make an appointment or ask any questions, you can simply call us at 702-822-2202. Your child deserves the chance to be the best they can be, and having clear vision and healthy eyes is crucial to that.
