"I was first referred to "Dr. Z" by our pediatrician for our son. Our first reason for seeing the doctor was that his tear ducts were still clogged. The second reason is that" we have a family history of congenital glaucoma and wanted to make sure that he looked healthy. Our first appointment was when he was just a 8 months old. The office is small, but run very efficiently. I found it very reassuring to see quite a few little ones. The appointment itself was quick, but the "Dr. Z" explained every procedure and why it was being done. Everything looked good, but she wanted to see us again at a year if the tear ducts remained closed. Fortunately, they opened so he had a recheck at age two. This appointment was a little longer complete with his eyes being dilated to check for the glaucoma. Everything was fine. It was quite a relief. We could not be happier with "Dr. Z." We have also had possible pink eye scares and the office was extremely terrific about squeezing us in.

"I have been pleased with his care for many years. He has helped me to make the adjustment to bifocals and has been very candid about contact lens and other products and how cost effective" they are. He has saved me money!

"She does vision therapy. Regular checkup is usually an annual exam and if there are problems either caused by head injury, disabilities or processing disorders, they use vision therapy" to put the eyes to work together better. Vision therapy is more than just glasses that is actually corrected and not like band aided but it actually fixes it. Vision Therapy is like eye exercises. We go in usually every week for twelve weeks and then get re-evaluated if we needed again.

Children often are diagnosed with illnesses and conditions that affect adults, but because of their special needs, they are often referred to pediatric specialists. Specialists in all areas can provide treatment plans to improve health and quality of life.

Pediatric optometry

Pediatric optometry is the branch of medicine that deals with the examination, diagnosis and treatment of children's eyes. Pediatric optometrists are specially trained to treat visual disorders in children.

An eye screening at school is not enough to know whether your child’s vision is in full working order. They need to regularly visit an optometrist.

Children are often unaware of their own vision changes because they usually happen so gradually, meaning extra caution should be used, says Murray. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Radcliffe F. of Fremont, California)

A child's vision is something that can deteriorate over time with few symptoms. One highly rated provider explains how regular eye exams can help prevent this.

Dr.
Gallatin Pediatric Optometrists Provider Name Locked
was friendly, attentive, and she and her associates conducted a thorough eye exam.
When the first pair of lenses came in, the prescription wasn't exactly right (understandable, since my eyes have always been a bit difficult to get right the first time) so she immediately reordered new lenses. The new prescription worked perfectly.
She struck me as efficient, personable, and although it's a busy location inside a Walmart, she didn't rush the exam. I would definitely recommend her to anyone else.
Be sure to make an appointment, because there seemed to be a lot of walk-ins. Without an appointment, you'll probably have to wait a long time.

I was impressed that she had crayons in her lab coat. During the visit, she took them out and started coloring my eyes on the diagram with what see was seeing, about the virus. She is the only eye doctor I've ever been to that has done that. I have been to a lot of eye doctors. She wasn't relying on her memory, she wanted to get it right. Not very often do I give all A's! If she was available, I would use her in the future.

is always on time, provided a thorough examination and had good communication. Overall, I think he is a good eye doctor and will explain everything well. I would say that his office is old, but the staff is very nice.

We have been seeing her for eight to ten years now. She is great with my kids. She is always polite and nice. If we have an emergency, then she will fit us in. For a regular check up then we have to wait until two weeks.
