Managing the eye health of your child is especially important in their developmental years. Unlike adults, children are less likely to speak up when they are experiencing problems with their vision.
By booking regular eye exams for your child, not only are you protecting them from immediate problems such as eye disease, you are instilling in them the value of their vision from a very early age, ensuring the quality of their eye health for years to come.

Your child is not born with all the capabilities to see and has to learn to use their vision, much like the way they learn to walk and talk. However, they are not always going to be able to communicate whenever they are having a problem with their vision.
Complete Family Eyecare recommends parents bring their child in for their first eye exam as early as 6 months. This allows you as the parent to have an understanding of where your child sits in terms of visual strengths and weaknesses. Depending on what the optometrist discovers during the exam, they will recommend you schedule follow-up appointments or adhere to a treatment plan.

“Dr. Chatoo is by far the kindest and most down-to-earth physician I have ever met. My cousin liked the glasses I got from her office so much that she called Dr. Chatoo to see if she could get herself a pair. Dr. Chatoo actually took the time to help my cousin find the glasses again, calling multiple different places and placing the order for her. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients, and I will be her patient for life. Thank you so much, Dr. Chatoo!”
“Had the best experience. Very chic and friendly place. Roya is one of the most friendly assistants. I came here for a visit before returning to uni, and she helped me get an appointment, AND my new eyeglasses ready all in less than a week. The doctor is also so detailed and helped explain everything concerning my eyes to me. Will definitely come back for my next check-up.”
