How to Prepare Your Child for an Eye Exam

It is normal for kids to learn via observation. This is why it is important to make sure your child can see as clearly as possible. At Within Sight Vision Center, we have been providing residents of Edmond, OK with reliable pediatric eye care services for many years. If your child has never visited an optometrist before, they may be anxious because they do not know what to expect. Read on to learn more about preparing your child for an eye exam.

What to Expect

Even young children can learn about the benefits of consulting with a medical professional. Parents should use words that are easy for their children to understand. It may be helpful to show kids pictures of instruments that our eye doctor uses and the clinic itself to inform them about the eye care process, making the prospect of visiting an eye doctor less frightening.

What Parents Should Know

To prepare yourself for the appointment, you should familiarize yourself with our clinic’s website and the products and services we offer. Consider stopping by the clinic to meet our optometrist and our team of eye care professionals. Before scheduling an appointment with our eye doctor, have a copy of your child’s medical history ready. Our optometrist will use this information to know if there are any particular eye conditions to screen for. Make a list of questions and concerns to ensure a productive consultation with our eye doctor. Be sure to comfort your child throughout his or her visit. Stay by your child’s side throughout the exam to help your child feel relaxed.
