During a kids’ eye test, we may need to use eye drops as part of the examination. These eye drops are designed to relax the muscles on the inside of your child’s eyes which makes for a more accurate assessment of their vision.

If eye drops are used, they may cause a little bit of a sting during administering and blur your child’s vision for up to 24 hours. However, your optometrist will discuss this entire process with you further during your child’s eye test.
