As the premier optometry practices in Silver Spring and Fulton, Maryland, Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen insist that parents are instrumental to a timely diagnosis of vision problems in children. Parents know their children best and are more likely to notice anything unusual about their child's eye health. If you notice your child doing any of the following, they may have an undiagnosed vision problem: Sitting too close to the television, holding object unnaturally close, squinting, tilting their head to see better, persistent redness or excessive tearing, or having the appearance of crossed eyes. All of these are warning signs that your child needs to visit Fulton Eyecare Center and be tested for vision problems by your Silver Spring eye doctor
. Early detection and appropriate treatment of vision problems, such as amblyopia and strabismus, can make a tremendous difference in your child's life.
Pediatric Eye Care Silver Spring
Pediatric eye exams with Drs. Ely and Cohen is more than just a measure of sight. Our skilled and trusted Silver Spring eye doctors will evaluate a child's vision by testing for eye teaming, focusing, depth perception, and visual tracking. We conduct such thorough eye examinations for young children because any breakdown in the complex system of vision can contribute to decreased academic performance. Having poor vision during the developmental years can create barriers to learning.
At Fulton Eyecare Center, we staff eye specialists who offer comprehensive care for a wide range of eye conditions in both children and adults. Our team of Silver Spring optometrists
can diagnose and treat a wide range of eye diseases and disorders, including glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, low vision, computer vision, macular degeneration, and dry eyes. For many years, Fulton Eyecare Center has served the communities of Silver Spring, Rockville, Garrett Park, Kensington, Olney, Sandy Spring, and more with comprehensive pediatric and adult optometry services, including eye exams and eye disease treatment.
Take charge of your eye health and visit Dr. Ely and Dr. Cohen at Fulton Eyecare Center at one of our two Maryland locations.
