Your child should not have to answer the same "which is better, 1 or 2" question over and over again. The world has changed, and along with it, so has eye care. Our Omaha clinic uses the most advanced medical technology to reduce or eliminate the parts of the eye exam we all used to dread.
Vision Specialists 180th & Harrison is proud to provide simple, modern eye care for children of all ages. We’re proud to continually support our community and provide our patients with the best eye care in the Midwest!
Simple & Easy.
Start With Simple Tests
Before your child sees our eye doctors, they experience three quick, high-definition scans for their prescription and ocular health. This allows their exam to be complete and efficient.
Glasses Prescription Scan:
Through this use of high-definition scans, your child's glasses prescription is more detailed than ever before, with little-to-no "which is better, 1 or 2" questioning.
No Puff Eye Pressure:
No more scary puff of air directly into your eyes. With the iCare® Tonometer, we can determine your child's risk for glaucoma with no puff of air.
With scanning laser technology, we are able to scan and capture 82% of your child's retina in one image, eliminating the need for most kids' eyes to be dilated.
Simple & Precise.
The Eye Exam
At Vision Specialists 180th & Harrison, we believe that we provide the best eye exams in the world! Through advanced technology, your child's eye exam can be more comprehensive and more efficient than ever before. The best part of any eye exam should be the end when your eye doctor carefully educates you and clearly lays out the next steps for your child.
At Vision Specialists 180th & Harrison, we take this one step further, with the Vision Experience Summary for each patient. Our doctors are all InfantSee® Certified.
Your Exam Summary
We want you to leave our office empowered with a complete understanding of your child's eyes. Every patient at Vision Specialists leaves with a concise one-page summary of the doctor's findings and next steps.
Modern Frames. Classy Kids.
Choosing Your Child’s Glasses
