What is Family Eye Care?

Family Eye Care at Clinton Eye Associates encompasses a comprehensive range of eye health services for all ages—from infants to seniors. We focus on routine eye exams, vision tests, screening for eye diseases, and personalized eye health management plans to ensure optimal vision and eye health for your entire family.

At what age should children have their first eye exam?

We recommend that children have their first comprehensive eye exam at Clinton Eye Associates by the age of 6 months. Early detection of conditions like strabismus (crossed eyes), amblyopia (lazy eye), or vision problems is crucial for effective treatment and ensuring proper visual development.

How often should my family have eye exams?

Frequency can vary based on age, health, and risk factors. Generally, we advise annual eye exams for children and adults to ensure any changes in vision or eye health are promptly addressed. Seniors aged 65 and older should consider bi-annual exams due to the increased risk of age-related eye conditions.

Absolutely! At Clinton Eye Associates, we offer a wide selection of eyewear and contact lenses to suit various needs and preferences. Our experienced team will help you and your family members select the perfect fit, ensuring comfort, style, and enhanced vision.

How can I tell if my child is experiencing vision problems?

Common signs include squinting, sitting too close to the TV, difficulty reading, eye rubbing, or complaints of headaches. If you notice any of these behaviors, it’s time to schedule an eye exam at Clinton Eye Associates to assess their vision and eye health.

Does Clinton Eye Associates offer screenings for eye diseases?

Yes, we conduct thorough screenings for eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection is key to managing these conditions and protecting your vision.
