This summer is quickly coming to an end, and your children will be returning to school before you know it. Make sure to squeeze in some time for back to school eye exams provided by the number one Summerville eye doctor, Dr. James Deavers. Having impaired vision can lead to serious problems for your child at school, both behaviorally and academically. Don’t let something that can easily be corrected inhibit your child’s success this year. Dr. Deavers and his staff work hard to create an environment that is welcoming and fun for children, so that they feel comfortable and happy for the entirety of their visit with us.
Each back to school eye exam will consist of Dr. Deavers administering a series of tests in order to evaluate your child’s vision and detect any underlying conditions that might be developing. These tests may include but are not necessarily limited to: a cover test, a retinal exam, a visual acuity test, a field of vision test, a slit lamp examination, refraction, intraocular pressure, and more depending on your child’s visual and medical history, and any symptoms that they communicate to our Summerville eye doctor. The most common vision impairments that we uncover during back to school eye exams are simple refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. These can easily be corrected using eyeglasses or contact lenses in time for the first day of school.
