Our Eye Doctors Specialize in Eye Care for Kids
Just as children have their own unique view of the world, their eyes are also not the same as adults. That’s why our optometrists in Kokomo, New Castle, and Marion, Indiana, treat children with customized eye care. From babies to young children to teens, we perform annual eye exams for kids to thoroughly examine their eyes for a range of pediatric vision conditions.
Routine vision testing in schools does not detect many visual disorders and problems; only an experienced, qualified eye doctor using advanced technology and techniques can spot the signs. Undiagnosed or untreated vision conditions can affect your child’s performance in the classroom, on the sports field, and in the playground. Why take chances with your kid’s eyesight? Call Preferred Eye Care to reserve a pediatric eye exam today.

What can you expect at an annual eye exam for kids?
One of our friendly eye doctors will evaluate your child’s visual skills, test refraction for farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism, and may administer a dilated eye exam to inspect the retina and optic nerve. We will be on the lookout for the symptoms of childhood ocular conditions, such as amblyopia, strabismus (misaligned eyes), and trouble with accommodation (focusing). Pediatric eye exams are quick and painless, and we aim to create a positive eye care experience for every child – so they look forward to returning!
Don’t wait until your child complains about her vision before booking an appointment with our optometrists. Even if kids suffer from blurred sight, it is typical for them to say nothing about it. Frequently, they aren’t even aware that the world should appear clearer.
What if my child needs vision treatment?
If your child requires vision correction, our opticians will review the best eyewear options with you and your kid. We understand that in addition to sharp vision, your child’s eyeglasses must match his style and make the right fashion statement. Kids can have strong opinions about their eyewear, and if the frames don’t have the proper look – then they won’t wear them. We feature a wide selection of designs and colors in our optical collection, and we’re sure that there’s a pair of fabulous frames for every kid.
