Enriching Lives through Vision

Meet Our Optometrists

Why Are Children’s Eye Exams Important?

Children’s developing eyes are particularly vulnerable to certain eye conditions, like myopia (nearsightedness), amblyopia (lazy eye), and strabismus (crossed eyes). As your child grows, it’s important to get them in for specialized eye exams to properly assess how their eyes are changing and spot the presence of these conditions early. It’s the best and easiest way to make sure their eyesight is never an obstacle to their success or happiness.

Pediatric Eye Exams vs. Vision Screenings

Our children’s eye exams provide a deeper and more complete look into their eye and vision health, beyond what the basic vision screens they get in school can catch. Many issues are not picked up by vision screenings alone because their main focus is the vision prescription. Our comprehensive pediatric eye exams thoroughly check your child’s eyes for these more advanced concerns, ensuring their overall eye health.

Our Pediatric Optometrists

Not only do our children’s optometrists have special training and a breadth of experience working with kids, but most are also parents themselves! That means they know exactly what it takes to treat your child’s unique eyes and any conditions they may have with compassion and care. We want to make your family feel like a part of ours, by giving you peace of mind that your child has the clearest vision and healthiest eyes.

Dr Thompson is an awesome eye doctor. Best yet. He has been the only one that has been able to get me a contact lens prescription that is as great as my eye glasses. He listens to what you have to say and always has suggestions to make things better. Great place to go!

Had a great experience last week with Premier Eyecare’s newest addition, Dr. Kelly Deering. She is very knowledgeable, personable and dedicated. I have been going to Premier Eyecare for the past 14 years and the whole team, from the receptionist to the contact specialist to the Optometrists, are always great to work with.

The entire staff has went above and beyond for myself and my kiddos. Whether it's been an eye infection, broken glasses, or when my son got his first pair of contacts, they always make sure that you are taken care of. They are not only the best in the area but the best in the business! Cannot say enough wonderful things about Premier Eyecare, their doctors and all of their staff.
