Are our children seeing well enough to succeed in school?

— Now that our children are heading back to school, it is vital to make sure they are seeing clearly and that their eyes are healthy. Eye strain or blurred vision can lead to poor academic performance. Now is a good time to have their eyes examined in order to start a successful new school year.
The independent doctors of Optometry at Pearle Vision in Riverdale can provide your entire family with the quality eye care you deserve.
Dr. Sudaporn Tanpattana specializes in adult and pediatric eye examinations. She received her bachelor of science degree in biology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with Honors. She received her Doctor of Optometry degree from SUNY Optometry and completed her residency in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation. Tanpattana provides comprehensive eye examinations and specializes in contact lens fittings. Her office contains state-of-the-art equipment in order to diagnose and manage ocular diseases.
