With one in four children having an undiagnosed vision problem, Dr. Mark Roy has made managing children's vision a priority at Oakland Optometry. Undetected vision problems can interfere with learning and lead to academic and/or behavioral problems. Children with vision problems frequently do not report symptoms because they think everyone sees the same way they do.
Additionally, parents often incorrectly assume that if a child passes a vision screening test, then there is not a vision problem. However, vision screenings only test for visual acuity. In reality, the vision skills needed for successful reading and learning are much more complex. That's why a comprehensive eye examination by an eye doctor is so important for children. Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to correct vision problems so your child can learn to see clearly.
We help kids stay on top of their game, too. School-aged athletes are particularly prone to eye injuries since they are still developing their hand-eye cordination, balance, and reaction times. Most sports-related injuries are preventable with protective sports eyewear available at Oakland Optometry.
Dr. Roy is commited to managing the health of your family through comprehensive vision care. 80% of learning is achieved through vision. It is essential that children need good eye care through professional annual eye examinations.
