Eye Exams For Children

eye exams for children in St Louis, Alton and Swansea

The American Optometric Association recommends that each child has an eye examination prior to starting kindergarten.  Children feel very comfortable in our kid-friendly office.  We see children as young as three years-old and have all of the proper instruments and eye charts to conduct very thorough eye exams on children.  All of our young patients get to pull a toy out of our special “treasure chest” at the conclusion of their visit.

Our Happy Patients Have A Lot To Say About Performance Eyecare

Our first visit was amazing! The front desk staff was super friendly and Dr. Cuff had a lot of good information for my son, my husband and myself. The office was laid back and the waiting room was kid friendly (always a plus!!)

I have been taking my family to Performance Eyecare for 12 years and we have always had exceptional service. They are always very kind and explain everything well. My first visit was getting glasses for my five year old! Very scary and they made it pleasant. More recently they have fitted my daughter with contacts and my husband and I will glasses. I have recommended Performance to many people over the years and will continue to do so.

Eyeglasses & Contact Lenses For Children

We feature a full line of children’s eyeglasses for all ages of children. We also fit contact lenses on children oftentimes as young as seven or eight years old during our eye exams for children.

Near-Sighted Vision Retainers

Something we are known for is that we provide vision retainers for children who are near-sighted. This revolutionary non-surgical procedure prevents the eyes from getting worse (more near-sighted) over the years.
