      The emphaiss in the evaluation of preschool-age children is in higher level guidance of the developing visual process with special consideration of preparing for the visual requirements necessary for school.

      The examination of the school-age child is directed toward the child’s daily visual requirements in the classroom. With each ensuing year, these daily classroom visual requirements will substantially increase. Our assessment will determine if the child has the visual ability to meet the expectations.
