Eye Tests For Children Fort Collins CO

Regardless of your age or physical health, it is important to have regular eye exams.

A pediatric eye exam is probably the most important aspect of health that every child should have checked every year.

To read and learn in school it is very important to have a clear vision. It is totally necessary for good academic performance. Parents tend to make sure their children have good visual health.

A comprehensive eye exam in our practice includes a series of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision .

These tests range from simple, such as having to read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as the use of a high-power lens to examine the health of the tissues within your eyes.

Some experts estimate that between 5% and 10% of preschoolers and 25% of school-age children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), all children should be examined at 6 months of age, at the age of 3 years and again at the beginning of school. Children without vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should continue to test each year at school.

Children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently. Common risk factors for vision problems include:

  • premature birth
  • developmental delays
  • Crossed or crossed eyes
  • Family history of eye disease
  • History of eye injuries
  • Other illness or physical illness

The AOA recommends that children who wear glasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months or according to the instructions of their ophthalmologist.

As of Tuesday evening, March 17th, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice, in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community. We will follow their recommendations and close our office to regular eye exams until further notice.

Please be assured that we are still available to triage all urgent and emergent issues as well as help you with routine matters during this challenging time.

What does this mean?

1) If you are scheduled for an annual eye examination our office will contact you to reschedule
2) If you need to replace glasses or contact lenses and need an extension on your prescription, please contact us and we will assist you in obtaining some until you can come in for a visit.
3) If you are running out of medication please contact us and we can transmit a refill electronically to your pharmacy.
4) If you have an ocular emergency we are, as always, available to help you at any time. Call us at 970-221-4811.
5) If you have an issue that cannot wait for an office visit, contact us and we will schedule a FaceTime, Skype or telephone appointment with one of our doctors. Medicare has temporarily relaxed its telehealth rules to allow this type of communication during the pandemic crisis. Other insurers may follow suit and allow for reimbursement of virtual care costs. The consultation must be initiated at your request.
6) During this period of social distancing and quarantine, we must all do our part by restricting activities outside the home except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
7) Please remember that 80% of COVID-19 cases are mild and resolve within a week. However, if you feel your symptoms are worsening, call ahead before visiting your doctor’s office or emergency department and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.

The CDC has many wonderful resources. Arming yourself and your family with clear information will help you avoid undue stress.

We have asked our staff to stay home until further notice to protect them, our patients, our city, our nation, and our planet. Despite the financial and emotional hardships this will cause, we ask every one of you to do the same.

Together we will weather this storm.

With sincerest wishes for your continued good health, we remain at your service,
