Pediatrics

The American Optometric Association recommends that a child can have their first eye exam as young as 6 months old.

Recognizing when a child is struggling in school and the benefit of recommending an eye exam:

  • 6 months: optometrists can make sure that an infant’s eyes are developing well and that there are no ocular or refractive problems that can lead to serious issues with their vision.
  • Elementary school: Some refractive, binocular, or visual perceptual issues do not arise until children are in elementary school. They should have a comprehensive eye exam if they are having learning problems in order to rule these conditions out, or to get the proper treatment if they do.

The doctors of Jones Eyecare have specialized training and certification in the diagnosis and treatment of Pediatric vision and medical disorders. Dr. Lorig SiIdiryan is the only Germantown Optometrist to complete a post graduate residency in Pediatrics and Vision Therapy. Have your child seen by the most qualified doctor in our area.
