ITEC physicians see patients of all ages. The American Academy of Ophthalmology suggests children with seemingly normal vision have their first eye exam by age four. Although most children have no eye problems, many ocular conditions may go unnoticed by the family. ITEC physicians routinely treat children with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, “crossed eyes” (strabismus), “lazy eyes” (amblyopia), blocked tear ducts, and other conditions. The doctors and staff at ITEC are comfortable treating newborns to teenagers and do their best to make a child’s visit to the doctor’s office easy and fun. The Carmichael Optical Shoppe has a wide variety of children’s frames and other items to help make your child’s vision the best it can be.
