Pediatric Eye Care in Newport Beach

Children can experience many of the same vision issues as adults, such as farsightedness, astigmatism, and nearsightedness. Other problems that are common among children are conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes). These can impact proper vision development. Eye exams for children are very important in order to treat any vision problems that may affect future vision.

Zaker Optometry Newport Beach is a leading pediatric eye care facility, providing excellent services for children and the entire family. Our board-certified ophthalmologists and optometrists have the education, training, and experience to provide pediatric eye care exams and treatment. 

Children’s Eye Exams

Children should have their first eye exams around the age of two, although it is never too early to test a child’s eye health. During your child’s eye exam, our pediatric specialist will test for the following:

  • Visual acuity
  • Eye alignment
  • Focusing skills (important when reading)
  • Overall eye health

Childhood exams also detect problems such as amblyopia, strabismus (crossed eyes), and color blindness, and can help detect dyslexia.

  • Tilting the head to one side
  • Rubbing eyes repeatedly
  • One or both eyes turn in or out
