Pediatric Eye Care at Maine Optometry
Our team at Maine Optometry understands how important your child’s vision is, which is why we provide extra attention and care for their sight and eye health. We believe in going above and beyond in everything we do, because nothing matters more to us than making sure your little ones can experience the world with clear vision.
What Is a Pediatric Eye Exam?
Our pediatric eye exams are just like our comprehensive eye exams, but they’re created with children’s eyes specifically in mind! We will examine their eyes and monitor for changes to ensure they’re healthy, in addition to determining their vision prescription.
Why Is a Pediatric Eye Exam Important?
Since kids’ eyes are constantly growing and developing, our pediatric eye doctors not only check your child’s current vision prescription, but also look for potential issues and concerns more common in younger eyes. The constant changes to their growing eyes makes it incredibly important to get regular pediatric eye exams, so they’re always seeing their best for school and play!
Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a condition we see most frequently in children where they have a hard time focusing on objects at a distance, but things close up appear clear. Our eye experts have several ways of slowing and even halting myopia’s progression, including innovative Ortho-K overnight lenses, which gently reshape your child’s eyes while they sleep!
We have a wide range of frames and lenses crafted specifically for children and smaller eyes, featuring styles and designs they’ll love wearing! We are also proud to offer Spudz — our very own unique collection of eyewear for children!
