Early detection of vision problems in young children is important because many children accept poor vision as normal. Dr. Elliott recommends comprehensive eye exams for children as early as the age of 3 (or sooner if problems are suspected). Dr. Elliott can complete this test even if your child doesn't know their ABC's. We use age appropriate shapes and symbols that children recognize to evaluate their vision. In addition, Dr. Elliott uses special testing methods that are fun and interesting to the child to determine the child's eye health.
