We offer complete eye health exams for newborns and up. Many eye conditions can cause permanent vision loss if not caught early. Dr. Colton was accepted to specially train in a select clinical rotation that focused on pediatrics, how the visual system changes from birth through adulthood, and how to diagnose and treat non-verbal patients. He has experience managing infants as young as one day old, and children with unique conditions such as Marfan's, Down syndrome, and severe autism.
A lot of changes happen during the first year of vision development. Our team will examine your newborn for congenital conditions such as high refractive error, strabismus, cataracts, glaucoma, eye cancers, early hydrocephalus, and blocked tear ducts.
Toddlers in play groups or day care are prone to viral and bacterial infections which can be treated. High refractive error, strabismus, and congenital glaucoma can appear for the first time during this stage of life.
Starting school and organized activities can put a high visual demand on your kids that they are not used to. Focusing problems such as accommodative paresis and convergence insufficiency are sometimes first detectable at this age. Retinal exams can show the first signs of type 1 diabetes, and certain leukemias.
Our team is ahead of the curve with myopia control technology. Treatments such as being fitted in an ortho-K contact lens can prevent or even stop your eyes from getting worse each year. This age range is the most at risk for becoming more nearsighted each year. Annual eye exams will ensure that vision does not limit your child's success in school.
