Offering Comprehensive Vision Care for Children, from Routine Eye Exams to Corrective Surgeries
Eyesight is precious. So choosing a doctor to care for your vision — and importantly, your child’s vision — is a critical decision. SLUCare pediatric ophthalmologists and optometrists specialize in the vision needs of children from infancy throughout the school years, catching and treating problems early when there’s the greatest opportunity for success.
Our doctors treat children of all ages and abilities, including kids who are unable to speak for themselves. We perform eye exams, evaluation for corrective lenses, and treatment for complex eye conditions that require a higher level of care, including surgery.
