At The Eye Place we understand the relationship between vision and academic performance. Unfortunately, 1 out of 4 students in school has an undetected vision problem resulting in poor performance and/or behavior issues. These are correctable when caught early. Many of these vision problems can result in a significant improvement in both academic performance and behavior.
We welcome children of all ages and have special equipment to assess all the same components as an adult exam. We know to move quickly and make it fun to keep the attention of our younger patients! Dr. Sedlacek truly enjoys kids and spends countless hours in area schools volunteering. He has a special knack with students and knows how to make their exam fun! He has been known to perform magic, juggle, and he even gives out stuffed animals and pencils to his young patients. Our office is kid-friendly in every room and we offer plenty of activities to keep them occupied even when they are not the patient! We have plenty of frames for kids, fit contact lenses on them when appropriate and offer advanced vision therapy services when indicated. Vision is the most important part of a child’s potential for learning and success. If your child has not had an eye exam yet, call us today at (440) 235-8099 to schedule an appointment!
We have a large selection of frames for kids, all of which are covered by our performance guarantee.
Dr. Scott is proud to be an InfantSEE® provider. As a volunteer doctor in this important program. Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at 6 months. Although these problems are not common, it is important to identify any these problems at this young age as vision development and eye health problems are easier to correct if treatment begins early. Dr. Scott will check your baby’s eyes for:
- Excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
- Eye movement ability
- Eye health problems
Under this program, Dr. Scott provides a comprehensive infant eye assessment to babies between 6 and 12 months of age as a no-cost public service. Contact our office today to schedule your baby’s eye assessment or learn more about this program.
