Welcome To Kids’ Eye Exams In Las Vegas
Children Love Our Fast & Friendly Eye Care!
Dr. Yesnick knows how to treat children so they look forward to returning for regular eye exams! With his warm manner, gentle touch and kind smile, he will perform a thorough kid’s eye exam in our local, welcoming optometry practice.
When it comes to children, a complete evaluation of their functional vision and entire visual system is critical. Undetected vision conditions can interfere with proper child development and successful learning. Just as you – the parent – strive to boost your child’s progress in school, scores on the sports field and healthy social relationships, Dr. Yesnick also cares!
Sharp vision goes far towards success in all parts of life. Our friendly Las Vegas kid’s eye exams are a powerful way to promote self-esteem and help children feel great about themselves!

Schedule For Kids’ Eye Exams
Parents ask us all the time about when they should bring their children for eye check-ups. Dr. Yesnick follows the basic guidelines set by the American Optometric Association (AOA).
American Optometric Association Recommendations:
- 1st exam: half-year old
- 2nd exam: 3 years of age
- 3rd exam: prior to entering elementary school, around 5-6 years old
Follow-up exams: at least every 2 years for children with no eyeglasses and no pediatric risk factors. If your child needs vision correction, vision therapy, or other ocular treatment, we will provide personalized instruction on how often to return for eye examinations.
Your Child’s Las Vegas Eye Exam
We will assess your child’s visual skills, visual acuity and ocular health.
With a series of fast and pain-free tests done in our local office, Dr. Yesnick will pay close attention to any signs of abnormality.
The specific procedures vary from child to child, depending heavily upon the age and stage of your child’s development.
