LAS VEGAS, Aug. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to growing demand, Drs. Kopolow and Girisgen announce their new location at Pearle Vision in the Tropicana Marketplace, reports Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry. They offer back to school eye exams among other services at their new location in Suite E4 at 6160 West Tropicana Avenue, Las Vegas. In addition to providing annual eye exams and monitoring eye health conditions, Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry offers patients designer frames. Children and parents can select from eye wear frames that are specially designed for children and offer additional durability or UV protection.
Back to school eye exams should be scheduled as part a child’s return to school and are increasingly important when children’s eyes are placed under additional stress from digital device use. Optometrists address any vision changes with their corrective eye wear for children. Undiagnosed and untreated vision problems can interfere with a child’s ability to perform in school. Vision problems can result in poor hand-eye coordination in a child and can play a role in disruptive classroom behavior and issues with social interactions.
Children should start receiving eye exams at six months and have their next exam at three years of age. Children should have additional eye exams before beginning elementary school and risk-free children need to be scheduled for eye exams every other year after starting school. Children with glasses or with vision issues need annual eye exams. An eye doctor will help correct vision problems in a child with the use of glasses or contact lenses when appropriate.
“Regular eye exams are necessary for children with or without vision issues,” said Dr. H. Kenneth Kopolow. “As we know, any vision problems that go unaddressed can potentially result in poorer academic performance and become an issue when children want to participate in sports. Our back to school eye exams evaluate the vision of children and our eye doctors offer corrective eyewear designed for children that can address issues of near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism. Our new location at the Tropicana adds additional convenience for patients to come in with their children for their back to school eye exam.”
Dr. H. Kenneth Kopolow, Dr. Steve Girisgen and their team of optometrists offer vision services at Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry to the residents of Las Vegas and Henderson. Their skilled team focuses on meeting the vision needs of patients using the latest technologies and effective vision care procedures. Services include comprehensive eye exams for adults and children, contact lens exam including hard to fit contacts, designer eye wear and computer vision syndrome treatment.
