Starting at one year old through 3 years old we will be screening your child's vision at their check ups via a photograph of their eyes. We will send the photos to be analyzed and give you results while you are still in the office. Most insurances cover this procedure. At 4 years old we will begin using traditional eye charts for screening vision. 

Special Announcement:

We are sad to announce that Dr. O'Byrne will be leaving our practice in early June.  She is moving to Philadelphia, following her husband who had an unexpected job offer.  We wish her all the best. 

The practice will be adding a new doctor  shortly.
