Pediatric Eye Exam

Why Are Children’s Eye Exams Important?

Eye exams are for the best way to protect your eyes and eye health because they allow us to catch issues early, even before your vision is affected. Children’s eye exams are even more crucial because their eyes are developing so much faster. At University Vision Centre, your child gets the special attention and focus they deserve for a high-quality pediatric eye exam.

What’s Different About Our Pediatric Eye Exams in El Paso, TX?

Children’s eyes change rapidly, and issues like severe myopia and amblyopia (lazy eye) are more likely to crop up during this time. Our experienced doctors look for these and other age-related conditions, and if we identify any issues, we can develop a plan to correct it and limit the potential impact on their long-term vision — with comfortable, child-friendly solutions.

Our Excellent Myopia Management Treatment

Our full-service approach to eye health extends to the customized treatment plans we create for you. Our caring team, which includes myopia management expert Dr. Gabriel Luna, excels at working with children — we thoroughly assess their eyes with a high-tech pediatric eye exam to determine the best path forward. Then we will create a customized plan that matches your family’s lifestyle using our catalog of myopia treatment tools, including multifocal contacts and Ortho-K lenses.

What is Myopia Management?

Myopia is a condition where the eye changes shape, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of on it, leading to symptoms like blurred or fuzzy vision, eye strain, squinting, and headaches. Because myopia is defined by a change in eye shape, treatment is often focused on helping the eye remain as spherical as possible, which can help slow myopia’s progression. At University Vision Centre, we know that there is no one-size-fits-all myopia treatment; genetics, screen use, and age all play a part. That’s why we offer a range of options, and why our team sits with you to hammer out a unique plan that fits your child’s needs and your family’s lifestyle.

Why Choose University Vision Centre?

Our compassionate team strives to make our pediatric eye exams as engaging and fun for your children, as it is valuable for their eyes. From our front desk staff to our technicians and eye doctors, we want to make your make child’s visit as comfortable as it can be so they’ll look forward to seeing us again.
