Vision in children is critical to their learning and development, and since children are often unaware that they may have poor vision, routine eye exams are invaluable. We recommend that all children receive a comprehensive eye exam at the age of 3, and annually once enrolled in school.
Dr. Shafer enjoys seeing children for eye exams, and the Acuity Pro software makes the process easier. With this specialized acuity chart, Dr. Shafer uses various letter, number, and picture charts to get the best results. Through this software, a Disney video clip can be shown in order to keep the child’s attention during their eye exam. This technology has made eye exams more entertaining and productive for young children at Shafer Vision Care.
