Back to School Vision Needs: Let University Vision Centre Help Your Entire Family!

We know that the beginning of the school year is a busy time of year, but at the University Vision Centre in El Paso TX, our optometry team strongly encourages you to get your whole family in for an eye exam soon if you haven't already done so. Diagnosing and treating vision and eye conditions now helps children have a more successful and comfortable academic year.

Common Reasons Why Your Child May Need Glasses

Our optometrists commonly diagnose the following vision problems in children (which can be managed well with prescription eyeglasses):

  • Farsightedness (close up objects appear blurry)
  • Nearsightedness (distant objects appear blurry)
  • Astigmatism (blurry vision at any distance)
  • Amblyopia or "lazy eye" (an eye doesn't process visual information due to impaired communication between the eye and brain)

If left uncorrected, these conditions can drastically impact a child's ability to succeed in school and sports. For instance, uncorrected vision problems often affect a child's ability to see the whiteboard, execute proper hand/eye coordination, and even pay attention during class or homework (as reading may lead to headaches or eye fatigue).

University Vision Centre Offers Designer Frames, Fun Styles, and Durable Material

Our optometry team encourages all children to see glasses as a cool addition to their personal outfit and style! We offer frames from popular designers including Ray-Bans, Bebe Eyes, Oakley, and many more—a whole range to suit your budget!

We also know that glasses are an investment in your child's eye health, so we commit to providing high quality and durable frames and lenses that last.
