Back To School Vision Care

Back to School Glasses and Eye Exams with Our Optometry Team in South Tulsa and Okmulgee

At The Eye Center of South Tulsa and Okmulgee, our optometry staff—led by Dr. Ward and Dr. Hall—loves helping families get back into the swing of the school year. We always encourage parents to schedule their child's routine eye exams toward the beginning of the new academic year to ensure they have all their vision needs to be met—including a stylish, durable, and comfortable pair of glasses!

The Importance of Routine Eye Exams for Young Students

Childhood vision problems that are undiagnosed and uncorrected can lead to a host of issues, including headaches, eye strain, attention difficulties, and even challenges in academics. Your kid may have trouble seeing the board or may have to squint frequently to read.

During a comprehensive pediatric eye exam, our Okmulgee and South Tulsa optometrist staff will evaluate your child's vision and screen for common disorders such as amblyopia (lazy eye), hyperopia (farsightedness), and myopia (nearsightedness). Earlier intervention can help prevent these conditions from worsening with age and alleviate symptoms which may be impacting your child's academic and athletic success. 

Your Kids Will Love Our Wide Selection of Frames and Styles

Having to wear glasses can be a bit of a bummer for some kids—but we encourage our patients to see glasses as an extension of their personal style! We have a range of eyeglasses to fit a variety of vision prescriptions, as well as frames of various colors, style, brand, and budget.

In addition to fitting your child with the right pair of frames, we'll also help you teach him or her how to care for their new glasses to ensure they always have the vision correction they need.
