Good vision can be a key to success when learning. Without clear vision, your child could struggle with tasks like seeing the board, reading, and using the computer. Vision also impacts other essential skills like hand-eye coordination, comprehension, and information retention.
The American Optometric Association recommends that school-aged children see the optometrist at least once per year. Your child should see the optometrist once between ages 6 to 12 months and once between ages 3 to 5.
You might need to take your child to the optometrist more frequently if recommended by your pediatrician or optometrist. Factors that could influence this can include family history of eye disease or your child’s medical history.
If you notice any of the following symptoms in your child, you should make an appointment for a children’s eye exam as soon as possible.
We’ve been seeing children for eye exams since 1983 and use cutting-edge techniques to keep your whole family’s vision great. We assess your child’s vision using techniques tailored for their needs.
For example, in infants, we test their pupil responses and their ability to fixate on and follow objects. In preschool-aged children who usually don’t know their letters yet, we use shapes and symbols to test their vision instead of a standard eye chart. With these methods, we can make sure your child has great vision as they grow up.

My wife and I both needed exams and new glasses. We called for an appointment and they were extremely nice and very accommodating. From the moment we walked in the door they were friendly and professional.
Very pleased with my recent visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and Dr. Matsuoka was very thorough with the exam, and recommendations.
Very helpful and smooth process. Always a joy chatting with the doc about my vision. Lots of frames to choose from and helpful staff to assist.
