Babies and preschoolers are often unable to express when they experience vision problems or trouble with their eye health. They’re generally unaware of what a normal functioning eye should look and feel like, so it’s vital to have their eyes examined by a professional to ensure they are healthy.
Have your child’s eyes examined before they are 6 months old to test if their eyes are properly aligned and seeing equally and assess their overall ocular health. We use specialized techniques to examine your child’s eyes, even if they can’t speak yet.
Your child’s vision will change significantly as they grow older. Annual eye exams are the best way to monitor your child’s vision and ocular health for any changes that may be indicative of an eye condition or disease.
Uncorrected eye conditions can hinder your child’s learning abilities and can negatively impact their development. Our empathetic team is here to pinpoint and treat any signs of eye diseases before they worsen.
What to Watch For
Keeping an eye on your child can ensure their eyesight is adequately cared for. The following symptoms can indicate that your child may be experiencing an eye condition that needs treatment or corrective eyewear:
Tilting or turning their head to focus
Drifting or “lazy” eye
Outward or inward-turned eye(s)
Difficulty reading or writing
Poor performance in school
If you notice any of these symptoms, please give us a call so we can bring your child in for a thorough assessment.
I absolutely love this place and these people are AMAZING! They have helped my son tremendously and I’ve even recommended for my mom to start coming here!
I’ve been going to Macha Family Eyecare for about 15 years. I absolutely couldn’t say enough about Dr. Macha, and his staff. They are friendly, and patient, and knowledgeable.
I once had an incident happen to me on a Saturday night with my contacts. Dr. Macha got back to me that evening and told me what to do for my eye until Sunday morning and made a special trip into his office to care for my eye. To me that says a lot. Can’t go wrong with these people.
Wonderful care and great service. The in-depth eye exam is excellent. Dr. Macha and all his staff are caring people. They also offer special plans for people without insurance. I wouldn’t go anywhere else
This was a wonderful first visit experience! The front desk staff was warm and professional, the technicians were knowledgeable, and the doctor was efficient and kind. They explained everything to me clearly and I felt like a valued customer. I would highly recommend!
