Special Needs Patients

Great Comfort and Vision

Our clinic provides eye exams and vision evaluations for patients with a range of physical, developmental and behavioral differences, including ADHD, autism, and Down’s syndrome.

Our exams are designed to meet the unique needs of these patients. We modify our approach to keep our special needs patients as comfortable as possible while delivering eye care as accurately and efficiently as possible.  It is important to us that they have a great experience while in our office.  Please allow more time for this type of exam.

What type of special needs patients do we see?
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Down syndrome
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Chromosomal abnormalities
  • Genetic abnormalities
  • and more.
What type of ocular complications do these populations tend to have?

These populations are more likely to have:

It’s even more important to have these groups’ eyes examined because they can’t necessarily tell you that there’s a problem and they are much more likely to have ocular conditions compared to their peers.

HOW TO GIVE YOUR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE

We know new experiences can be scary for kids and even more so for children with special needs who may have sensory issues.  Click on the flip-book (left) to show your child what to expect during each step of the exam, and review the tips below.  The flip book is also available for download.
  • bring a lovie if age-appropriate
  • avoid scheduling the exam close to meal times
  • avoid scheduling next to a family member’s appointment.  We are likely to lose their attention if they have to sit through a family member’s exam.  Likewise, they may get scared watching another family member dilate.
  • discuss dilation drops in advance
  • load an episode of their favorite show on your phone for us to use as a fixation target during the exam
