A comprehensive eye examination will be performed on your child when you come to the office.
- Visual acuity will be assessed
- Ocular motility is evaluated
- A slit lamp examination will be performed when possible
- Drops are placed in the child’s eyes in order to perform a dilated eye exam to obtain a good view of the retina and optic nerve
Please be prepared to stay in the office for 1 ½ hours for the initial examination. Dilation of the retinal in children often takes 45 minutes.
