Pediatric Revision

Specialized services in eye care for children.

Eye examinations for all ages, especially for children of 4 years and over.

 

In Optica Maestro, we recommend that parents help their child in realizing that eye examinations are designed to be friendly and fun, and to eradicate any fears or worries your child may have.  Our professionals are here to make every visit a pleasant one, with various techniques and games that will earn the Childs trust and collaboration, giving them fond memories of our centre.

At birth, a newborn will have their vision checked by a pediatrician while still on the hospital ward.  It is very rare for problems to be found.  A newborn babies eye is approximately 75% the size of an adult eye, and will continue on developing throughout the first 2 years of their life.

 

 

Good vision is extremely important to children as they perceive almost everything through the sense of sight, therefore regular checkups are important.  It is never too early to care for the visual health of a child.  Revisions made by pediatricians are essential but not as comprehensive as those made by optometrists at our center.  Learning difficulties can sometimes be caused by uncorrected vision problems, the earlier they can be detected, the better chance of correcting these difficulties.

As much as 80% of learning is accomplished through our vision during the first 12 years of our lives.  Unfortunately 1 out of 4 children have undetected visual problems directly affecting their development.

Common signs to look out for are: getting too close to objects, a tendency of getting too close to the TV, squinting, rubbing of the eyes, irritation, clumsiness.  Our job at Optica Maestro is to prevent these problems by giving a thorough eye examination that will inform us of any necessary treatments, and to evaluate any possible causes.

  • Eye examination, made with specific material for children.
  • If necessary for further treatments we offer follow up consultations to control and monitor our patients.
  • We offer a wide and extensive range of glasses especially for children, to minimize potential problems that can be associated with the use of glasses at young ages.
  • Amblyopia……very important to check that the child has the same vision in both eyes.

CONTACT LENSES FOR ALL AGES

Children no longer have to wait to use contact lenses.  Optica Maestro has fully trained specialists to offer you expert advice before and after you purchase your lenses.

+My Vision are special lenses for children that are safe to use whilst enjoying all their normal daily activities, chores or sports.  Any age is good to use contact lenses, as long as the child is willing to take on a responsibility.

The main advantage of using contact lenses is that they provide security whilst taking part in sport activities, or those where the use of glasses would be dangerous.  At an age where wearing glasses can make certain complexes arise, contact lenses can take that worry away.

We have extensive experience in the success of contact lens adaptation, relying on the most prestigious laboratories and best materials in the pursuit of greater customer satisfaction and guaranteeing the best and safest eye care.

For more information on contact lens adaptation, do not hesitate to make an appointment with one of our specialists who will provide and advise on the best solution for you.

Remember! The eye consultation and contact lens adaptation are completely free!
