Quality Pediatric Ophthalmology Services

Care From San Antonio’s Pediatric Eye Center

Welcome to our pediatric ophthalmology page! At Alamo Pediatric Eye Center, we provide a range of services and treatments for the eye health of children.

Some of our comprehensive services include:

  • Checkups: Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining good eye health in children. We recommend that children have their first eye exam at 6 months of age, then at age 3 and again before starting school. After that, we suggest annual checkups to ensure that any issues are caught and addressed early.
  • Eye care and eyeglass prescriptions: If your child needs glasses or other vision correction, we can help. Our team of pediatric ophthalmologists will evaluate your child's vision and provide the appropriate prescription from our onsite optical shop.
  • Nearsightedness, farsightedness & astigmatism: These are common vision problems that can affect children. We offer a range of treatments for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, including glasses, contact lenses, and surgery if necessary.
  • Eye infections treatment: Eye infections are common in children, and "pink eye" (conjunctivitis) is one of the most common types. We can diagnose and treat eye infections, and provide advice on preventing their spread.
  • Eye injury and corneal abrasion treatment: Accidents happen, and sometimes injuries occur to a child's eye. We can provide emergency care for eye injuries, including corneal abrasions.

We are committed to providing the highest quality care for our young patients. If you have questions about our services or want to schedule an appointment, reach out to us today.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I take my child to see a pediatric ophthalmologist?

Parents should take their child to see a pediatric ophthalmologist if they notice any signs of vision problems such as frequent eye rubbing, eye tearing, squinting, or difficulty reading or seeing objects at a distance. Other indicators include crossed eyes, droopy eyelids, or white spots in the pupil.

What can I expect during my child’s ophthalmology visit?

During your child's visit, the pediatric ophthalmologist will examine their eyes using specialized equipment to assess their vision and eye health. They may also dilate your child's pupils to get a better view of the back of the eye. Depending on the outcome of the examination, the doctor may recommend treatment options such as corrective lenses, eye patching, medication, or surgery.

How can I help prevent eye problems in my child?

There are several things you can do to help promote good eye health in your child, such as making sure they eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, encouraging them to spend time outdoors, and protecting their eyes from UV rays with sunglasses or hats. Additionally, you should make sure your child is getting regular eye exams and address any concerns or issues promptly.
