What to Expect


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.
