Las Vegas Pediatric Eye Exams

Comprehensive pediatric eye exams are essential for the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems, conditions and diseases; early detection is especially vital in children. Early detection allows for treatment to begin before a child experiences the challenges associated with poor vision, or before any permanent damage to vision has occurred. The Las Vegas optometry office of Shannon Chandler, O.D., strives to provide the highest quality of pediatric eye care, ensuring that your child achieve optimal vision and eye health, thereby minimizing or preventing vision problems that could affect their school work or other everyday activities. We focus on kid-friendly eye exams for children 5 years of age and older. If your child is younger than 5 years of age and experiencing eye problems, we can provide you with a referral to the appropriate specialist.

Eye examinations for children are especially important, as 5 to 10 percent of preschoolers – and 25 percent of school-aged children – experience problems with vision. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that infants have the first eye exam at 6 months of age. Children should be re-examined at age 3, then again just before they begin school. Scheduling a child’s pediatric eye exam at the office of Dr. Chandler can be very beneficial, as many basic skills require good eyesight, such as near and distance vision, binocular (two eyes) coordination, peripheral awareness, and hand-eye coordination – all essential in a child’s learning process. Comprehensive pediatric eye exams also test visual acuity, eye tracking and focusing skills, and can detect problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, crossed eyes, and color blindness. Dr. Chandler suggests that all children have their vision evaluated annually; this is recommended for those who wear vision correction in addition to those who may not. Our team of caring eye doctors will also check for eye diseases during the child’s eye exam, and evaluate the eyes as an indicator of the overall health of the child. The office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. also offers state of the art diagnostic equipment, such as digital retinal photography.

At the Las Vegas optometry office of Shannon Chandler, O.D., our mission is to preserve, restore, and enhance the vision of our patients of all ages. Dr. Chandler provides particular care in the treatment of pediatric patients – establishing good eye health early can aid in avoiding complications with the eyes and overall ocular health in the future. Please call our office today if you have any questions regarding pediatric eye exams, or would like to schedule an appointment.

EyeScreen Exams Vegas

Our Vegas optometrist now offers state-of-the-art EyeScreen digital retinal photography during your visit to help evaluate the health of your retina. The retina is located at the back of your eye; therefore, in the past, it may have been difficult to get a detailed view of that area. Now, with EyeScreen, our Vegas optometrist can take a high resolution digital image of your retina in order to document, review, and compare your retina over time. What this means is that we can refer to these high resolution images at all of your return visits so that we can make more accurate and detailed diagnoses if necessary.

Some of the most common conditions that affect the eyes can be detected with a thorough retinal exam. These include macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, retinal detachments, diabetic retinopathy, and more. Being able to catch these conditions earlier in their development can make a huge difference in the success of your treatment. Our Vegas optometrist can give you more specific details about how the EyeScreen images can benefit you during your next visit to Dr. Chandler’s office.
