Pediatric Eye Exams



Welcome to Artisan Pediatric Eyecare where we believe good eye health starts young. Our pediatric eye care services are widely recognized as being among the finest available in the Pacific Northwest. That's why Artisan Pediatric Eyecare is the Treasure Valley's first choice for pediatric eye care.

Unlike other optometrists, our doctors have completed residency training in pediatric eye care and neuro-optometry. This advanced training uniquely qualifies our doctors to diagnose and treat vision conditions affecting children of all ages. Our doctors routinely treat complex refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism), eye infections, and pediatric vision conditions (such as amblyopia and strabismus). Our pediatric eye doctors provide comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, and age appropriate treatment options for your child. Early intervention and treatment is important for many pediatric eye conditions, which is why our doctors begin seeing children in the first year of life.

The eye doctors at Artisan Pediatric Eyecare are dedicated to providing excellence in a full-range of children's vision services in a warm, child friendly environment. So whether your child has net yet had an eye exam, has recently failed a vision screening at school or at the pediatrician's office, or has an on-going vision condition that requires expert care – Artisan Pediatric Eyecare is for you.

Age-Appropriate Eye Exams

As you would expect, pediatric eye care is very different from an eye exam for an adult. Residency trained pediatric optometrists use different tests and instruments that are age-appropriate for your child. Our doctors can perform eye exams and testing for children of any age, even if your child does not know their letters or how to read, has special needs, or is non-verbal.

Whether your child is an infant or a teenager, Artisan Pediatric Eyecare is your best choice. The eye doctors at Artisan Pediatric Eyecare provide specialized care for all aspects of ocular conditions affecting children. Our doctors are in-network with most insurances so it doesn't cost more to bring your child to the residency trained pediatric eye doctors at ArtisanPediatric Eyecare.


Wondering when you should schedule an eye exam for your child? It is recommended that every child have their first eye exam prior to their first birthday, typically 6 to 9 months of age. This is because vision affects childhood development. If you missed scheduling that first recommended eye exam it's not too late.

Call our office at 208-900-3336 to schedule an appointment. Our doctors can update your child's health record with your primary care physician or pediatrician, and insure that your child's vision and ocular health is under the care of pediatric vision experts.

We look forward to seeing you! ​
