Your children's eyes are precious to you, of course. And here at Quality Optical of Olney, we share that belief. When your child is able to see his or her best, it has a profoundly positive affect on her or his life, from school to play; from reading to watching television. In addition, eye diseases and disorders, including those that can affect anyone and those that are specific to kids, need to be detected early so that our pediatric optometrist in Aspen Hill can treat and manage them effectively. This is all part of top quality pediatric eye care, which you can expect from our office.
Among our goals is to make certain that your child feels comfortable. A session with our pediatric optometrist in Aspen Hill is nothing to be scared of, but new and unfamiliar things can still cause anxiety for children. Our office is pleasant and our staff are welcoming. Our kids optometrist will acquaint your child with the equipment. And aside from a mild stinging sensation when eye drops are applied, the experience should be completely free of pain and discomfort.
If eyeglasses are needed, our pediatric optometrist in Aspen Hill will write a prescription your child's need, be that nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of those. He or she will undoubtedly enjoy picking out a pair of designer frames for her or his glasses. Today, there is no longer a negative association to wearing eyeglasses the way there used to be. There are a wide variety of choices for your child to select from.
Two common eye concerns for kids are wandering eye and lazy eye. These disorders originate in the brain and the way it interprets signals from the eyes. One eye, the stronger one, is given priority by the brain. Our pediatric optometrist in Aspen Hill can correct this by making the weaker eye work harder. To accomplish this, there are three methods. The stronger eye is either covered with an eye patch, dosed with eye drops, or your child will wear a pair of glasses which contain a prescription that is stronger for the eye that is weaker.
