Vision problems make school difficult. A professional eye exam is one of the best ways to give them a good foundation for learning. While most schools provide a vision screening, these are not accurate enough to determine overall eye health.
The American Optometric Association recommends eye exams for children at ages 6 months, 3 years, 5 years, and every other year afterward. Doctors at Visual Ophthalmology can determine if exams are needed more often on an individual basis.
Not only do we provide eye exams for school but also for DMV testing. Good vision is essential for safely navigating a vehicle. Driving requires adequate distance vision, depth perception, near vision (for focusing on the dashboard), peripheral vision, night vision, and color vision all working together.
Vision tests at the DMV usually focus on visual acuity, peripheral vision, and the ability to see colors (depending on the state you live in). If the time is nearing for you to renew your driver’s license, be sure to come in for a vision exam so we can correct any vision problems before time to test. Be sure to take any corrective lenses with you on the day of the DMV exam.
