EyeMax is so grateful for all our wonderful patients and the opportunity you have given us to care for your eyes this year!

Providing excellent care and convenience to our patients is a top priority for EyeMax. That's one of the reasons we have chosen to build our practice inside Walmart- you're just a step or two away from ordering glasses and contacts in the Vision Center.

We also understand that many of our patients prefer ordering online, so we've implemented a new program to make that process even easier! EyeMax has partnered with Dr. Contact Lens (https://portal.drcontactlens.com/) to provide a location where our patients can access their prescription at any time, and order contacts with just a few clicks. Once your prescription is finalized, it will be uploaded to the secure website where it will be accessible to you through text or email. All our patients with a current prescription will be have access to this resource. If you have insurance benefits that you need to use, we may be able to help you apply these benefits as well.

We hope this change makes your life just a little bit easier. Something we can all use in 2020! Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 859-272-1422 if you have any questions. We’re happy to help!

It's that time of year again, when the days begin to get shorter, the weather slightly cooler, and children everywhere return to school. Now's the time to make sure your kids' eyesight is okay. Healthy eyesight is critical to the learning processes and a child's accomplishments in the classroom. There are many activities that demand optical skills, such as reading, writing and computer work, which children are expected to perform everyday. Despite the strong correlation between vision and learning, many parents miscalculate the occurrence of children affected by eye and vision problems.

A good number of the problems a child suffers from in the classroom can be the result of sight problems. The percentage of students who have undiagnosed problems with eyesight is exceedingly high. Studies demonstrate that 60 percent of students classified as "problem learners" actually have undiagnosed vision troubles. You can avoid childhood trauma if you make it a priority to ensure your child's vision is up to par.

Don't push off your child's first eye exam until kindergarten. Your child's doctor should do a dilated eye check-up to identify any major eye problems within the first two months of life. It's critical to uncover any issues right away, since children are usually more responsive to treatment when diagnosed early. Furthermore as a parent, it's important to see whether your child enjoys reading. Generally, kindergarteners are excited to look at books and attempt to read. Children that avoid books or reading may be experiencing a vision problem. Before you jump to any conclusions, it's a good idea to get a vision screening. For an eye exam for your child in Lexington, KY, call us to schedule an appointment.

Keep in mind that the earlier a vision problem is detected and taken care of, the greater the chances for successful treatment. And vision is an essential component for school work. If a child's eyesight is limited, growing visual requirements such as finer print in books or more homework can considerably change a student's performance. At the same time new technological advances in the classroom, such as the use of interactive whiteboards, can also potentially make less obvious vision problems worse. A student with poor vision will be affected both at school, and emotionally and physically. Before school starts this year, make sure your child's vision is on par!
