Vision is our most precious sense, and maintaining good vision in our children is of utmost importance. All children should have their first eye exam by the age of five to prevent various life-long conditions such as lazy eye. If your child requires prescription eyewear, make sure they’re fit by a professional and the lenses are made of polycarbonate materials. At Mainely Eyes, our licensed and experienced opticians are sure to give your child the professional guidance needed.

Stop by Mainely Eyes today and schedule an appointment for your child!
