Silver Spring pediatric optometrist
Taking care of your eye health is incredibly important for patients of all ages. Some people unfortunately do not know just how important visiting their eye doctor on a regular basis is, especially for small children. Here at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center, our Silver Springs pediatric optometrist can help provide kids with the comprehensive eye care that they need to ensure that their eyes and their vision are healthy as they grow and develop.
Kid’s vision is extremely vital, especially when they are very young. Kids’ eyes are checked and thoroughly examined as soon as they are removed from the birth canal. This is to ensure that their eyes have developed and are working correctly upon being born. After returning home from the hospital, however, it is important to have an infant’s eyes checked again when they are about six months of age. Pediatric exams, such as one for a six month old baby, help make sure that a child’s eyes are developing normally. This requires monitoring of their eye and vision health about once a year from the time of this six month mark examination. Here at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center, our Silver Springs pediatric optometrist can provide your child with the comprehensive eye care that they need to make sure that their eyes continue to grow healthily and normally. One of our three eye doctors - Dr. Ely, Dr. Cohen or Dr. Mirza - will make sure that your child’s eyes are functioning correctly, that their eyes can focus properly and that they have no problems following objects or other such things. If something is caught early on, treatment can be administered immediately so as to prevent a lifetime of vision impairment or other eye issue. It is important to monitor kids’ vision as they continue to grow, ensuring that their eyes are growing and developing along with the rest of their bodies without issue.
If your child is six months of age or if they are older and you are seeking a pediatric eye doctor to provide routine care, our team of eye doctors here at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center can provide you with the comprehensive checkups and exams that your kids need to stay as healthy as possible.
