How are children’s eyes tested?

Eye examinations in children involve many age-appropriate tests which are designed to be fun while providing the optometrist with valuable information. Take it from us, most kids only cry when they have to leave the office! Infants are assessed with a series of “objective” tests with no verbal responses required, unlike the “subjective” tests used on adults. When the use of eye drops is required, we provide an unpreserved formula for children that minimizes stinging.
