A Complete Eye Exam for Children

Dr. Lodenquai provides a complete eye exam for children. The exam includes a detailed physical and ocular history and a thorough evaluation of the visual system including the refractive state of the eyes (this determines whether you need glasses or not). She checks:

  • The oculomotor system (the movement and tracking ability of your eyes)
  • The focusing system
  • The teaming of the two eyes (how well the eye balls work together to offer clearer vision)
  • Your general eye health including glaucoma check, macular degeneration check, cataract check and others, depending on your situation and family history.

The pediatric eye exam also includes tests that are just for children:

  • Color vision test
  • Stereo test
  • Simple eye movement test
  • Other kid-friendly evaluations
