What could be more precious than your child’s eyesight?
According to the Vision Council of America, 1 in 4 children have a vision problem that can interfere with learning. At Signature Eye Care, we understand how important your child’s vision is to their development and learning. We see children 4 years and older. We will do a thorough eye exam for your child so that they can see their world as clearly and comfortably as possible. We also have an extensive selection of eyewear products for your child including pediatric frames, sports glasses, and contact lenses.
10 Warning Signs of Vision Problems in Kids

Why are we so concerned about your child’s eyesight at Signature Eye Care?
Dr. Lou’s Story
“My own personal experience as a child made me want to become an optometrist. My teachers were puzzled because I was underperforming and struggling in reading. In third grade, an optometrist discovered I had a high nearsighted and astigmatic prescription. It was a life-changing moment when I got my eyeglasses and could see so clearly for the first time. From then on, I had the improved eyesight to do well in school and enjoy reading, and had the growing confidence to achieve in life. I will do everything I can to make sure that vision is not an obstacle for your child.
That same optometrist played a big role in another pivotal moment in my childhood. He fitted me in contact lenses and it helped me have the freedom, increased peripheral vision, and confidence to make the seventh grade basketball team. I saw that as a breakthrough moment and have enjoyed the many years of camaraderie and lasting memories from sports.”
With an entire section of approximately 400 children’s frames, we will have your child seeing and looking great often times in an hour. From designer frames, such as Ray-Ban to Lilly Pulitzer, to prescription sports goggles you will find a perfect match for any style or budget. Our staff knows that finding the right frame is always important, but especially if it’s your child’s first frame. Choosing the right lenses is also critical to your child’s vision, safety, and function. We have a variety of options to consider including impact-resistant lenses for your child’s safety, scratch-resistant lenses for durability, ultraviolet-blocking lenses to protect your child’s eyes, transition lenses that act like sunglasses outside and glare-reducing lenses so that your child can see optimally.
