It is important that people of all ages get the proper eye care. When it comes to annual exams and checkups, a simply physical will not suffice in terms of your eye health. A comprehensive eye exam is vital when it comes to looking at the inner workings of the eye, at the quality of vision and at the way the eye works itself. This is especially important for children who are still growing and developing at a very quick rate. If your child is in need of kid’s eye care, our kid’s optometrist in Lake Mead can help. With Michael Vathanasaynee, OD your child’s eye and vision health will be in good hands.
When a child exits the birth canal, their eyes are examined for any immediate issues or causes for concern. This initial exam ensures that the child’s eyes developed properly during their time in the womb and that they are in working order. But children continue to grow after birth and it is still important that their eye health and development are checked up on from time to time. It is highly recommended that children begin seeing a pediatric optometrist from the time that they are about six months of age or so. With routine exams and checkups, our kid’s optometrist Michael Vathanasaynee, OD can make sure that your child’s eyes are growing and developing as they should. If any issues are spotted, they can be provided with treatment immediately. This could mean the difference between living with or without a lifelong vision impairment. Dr. Vathanasaynee will look at all aspects of your child’s eye health, including the inner workings of the eye such as the retina and optical nerve, the muscles that control the eye and eye movement, as well as their visual acuity and other abilities.
