Comprehensive family eye exams will assess the visual and ocular health of each member of your family in Cornelius, NC.
Family eye exams are an important part of caring not only for your own health and vision, but also of caring for the needs of your family. While many adults find their vision changing as they get older, vision problems in children are important to diagnose and address early in order to help their quality of life and the ability of the child to see and comprehend important information as he or she begins school.
Most parents aren’t aware that up to 10% of preschoolers and 25% of school-aged children have some type of vision problem. Having one place you can trust for family eye exams will help you save time and money by not running to multiple offices for various family members or vision needs.
