Pediatric Eye Exams From Our Eye Doctor in West Des Moines

At Huseman Eye Care, our eye doctor in West Des Moines is committed to your family's eye and vision health. We even offer pediatric eye exams, which we strongly recommend for school-aged children at least once a year. If your child has not yet had his or her annual eye exam, be sure to schedule yours before the school year starts back up!

Importance of Pediatric Eye Exams

There are many reasons as to why an annual pediatric eye exam is so important. For starters, these exams allow us to keep a close eye on your child's eye health and development, as well as stay up-to-date on any changes in his or her vision. There are many eye conditions that are common in children (such as lazy eye), but if we are able to catch them soon enough, they can be successfully treated and/or managed. An annual pediatric eye exam allows us to do this.

In addition to keeping an eye on your child's eye health, an annual eye exam also allows to ensure your child's corrective vision prescription is up-to-date. This way, your child can enter the school year with sharp vision and confidence in the classroom.

What to Expect From a Pediatric Eye Exam in Des Moines

When your child comes in for a pediatric eye exam in Des Moines, we will take the time to get to know your child's medical history and family history. From there, we will screen for common childhood eye conditions and test for:

  • Myopia and hyperopia (near-sightedness and far-sightedness)
  • Astigmatism
  • Amblyopia
  • Eye movement and alignment
  • Eye health
  • Overall visual acuity
  • Signs of color blindness

If needed, we can complete any additional diagnostics or test in-house as well.

  • "Had an exam yesterday, everyone was very nice. I also had my rowdy 3-year old and they were so patient as he was very curious to what was going on, they had crayons and paper for him. Dr. Katie was who I saw and she explained everything so well I had no problem understanding what she was telling me. I was impressed with how quickly I was able to see her since this was my first visit and check in went quickly. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a comfortable atmosphere."
