Have you ever walked into an optometrist’s office and felt completely lost? It is not unusual for patients who are seeking an eye exam to feel completely bewildered by all the terms used by a doctor.

Pediatric Eye Exams
In our long experience as an eye care office, we have found that age makes little difference when it comes to contracting eye problems. It is a serious mistake to think that young children are less likely to have eye issues than adults. In fact, poor eyesight is one of the leading causes of reading problems in children. Of the estimated 2 million children in the United States with reading difficulties, some 1.4 million of them have some form of problem with their vision.
A comprehensive eye exam for a child could save a lot of heartache and pain. We need to protect our children when they grow up and identifying issues in their vision is a terrific way of doing so. Those who have problems reading develop low self-esteem and have an unpleasant experience in school. If you believe that your child may have a problem with his/her eyes, contact Eyes on the Island today and we will perform a an eye exam to ensure maximum visual efficiency.
Eye Exams For Seniors
We are also dedicated to aiding the elderly when it comes to maintaining their eyesight. An array of eye problems can manifest themselves as we get older. As well as an eye exam, we also provide important information about nutrition that may improve existing conditions or stop your vision from deteriorating. This includes a number of vitamins that are proven to greatly aid eyesight.
If vision is already impared, due to existing health issues, an assessment will be made to determine how low vision aids may be helpful as well as the latest in vitamins and supplements.
