Frisco Eye Associates for KIDS has a mission to provide a one of a kind pediatric specific optometry experience by combining years of residency training in a clinical setting along with close coordination with the patient's pediatrician. We hope to create an environment for pediatric optometry that has previously not been available in North Texas, and we intend to do this with same emphasis on customer service and excellence that our practice has become known for over the last 20 years.
Frisco Eye Associates opened its doors in 1997 in a small office on Stonebrook Parkway in Frisco. As Frisco and our office have continued to grow over the years we have always attempted to put our best foot forward to continue providing our community with the best optometric services available. This dedication first sprouted our larger and revamped home office on Stonebrook parkway, and now we are entering a new chapter with our state of the art Pediatric Optometry office Frisco Eye Associates for KIDS!
Frisco Eye Associates for KIDS is a full service optometry practice built from the ground up just for kids. Complete with not only state of the art medical equipment, but also a customized optical retail space with the largest selection of children's eye wear around and a dedicated recreational space that kids will love. Dr. Young, our pediatric optometrist, is a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and is a leading residency trained pediatric specialist. Our staff has been carefully selected and trained in techniques specific to pediatric optometry. We believe this new location is really one of a kind.
COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMINATIONS
When we do eye exams, we refuse to cut corners. We always schedule ample time so you will never feel rushed. Our examinations are 100% comprehensive and we have staff members specifically trained to meet the needs of our younger patients. We provide complete eye care for children, and Dr. Young is one of the only, if not the only, residency trained pediatric specialists in the Dallas area. What does residency trained mean? It means that upon graduating with her doctoral degree Dr. Young spent an additional year in a post doctoral learning program focusing solely on pediatric eye care and research. In addition to her residency, Dr Young also earned fellowships in the America Academy of Optometry. A process that requires rigorous study and committment to show the highest level of professional competence in her field. The American Academy of Optometry selects a few of the very best of these ambitious graduates as fellows who represent the most ambitious and competent representatives of optometry. It is a designation to be proud of for sure, and we are lucky to have Dr. Young's expertise here in Frisco.
We are excited to be able to offer the largest children's eye wear selection in the area. We have frames that will suit every age from infant to pre-teen, as well as selections for the active lifestyles most children have. Our optical dispensary is designed to be totally kid friendly and includes an indoor playground, lowered tables and mirrors for children, and there are even snacks (and coffee for mom)! We are passionate about offering an eye wear experience for KIDS that is unmatched anywhere.
We have frames for kiddos in every category including: Infant, Toddler, Child, Pre-Teen, as well as designer lines for kids, sunglasses, spring hinges, flexible impact resistant, sports glasses and more.
Lens Offerings: We have a full service optical laboratory that can accommodate any lens design available on the market. Polycarbonate lens material is the suggested lens type for kids under 18 as it is impact resistant and will not shatter.
Depending on the age, maturity level, and sometimes medicinal need there may be some parents interested in having a child try contacts. Due to the tedious nature of disposable contacts we usually recommend children wait until around their teenage years to begin trying contacts, however there are occasions where contacts may be recommended or requested sooner and we are more than happy to accommodate these patients.
OPTOMAP RETINAL EXAM
The Optomap retinal examination utilizes a state of the art machine to photograph the interior of the patient's eye. This is where the retina is located. The retina is the most essential and important piece of the vision puzzle. It translates all of the light that enters your eye into electrical impulses that can the be sent to the brain for interpretation. Obviously because of it's extreme importance to the visual pathway, it is important that we check the health of the retina at each visit. With dilation we are able to get a decent view in. However, the Optomap not only provides a better look in, but also allows us to see deeper layers of the retina and we can keep the images on file to compare year over year. There are no side effects at all and it only takes a moment to capture the photo. Our doctors recommend every patient get an Optomap image taken at every annual visit.
EYE INFECTIONS & EYE INJURIES
Our office provides emergency services for eye infections and eye injuries. Please call our office at 214-619-5580 during office hours or our emergency number; 972-712-1010 after hours or on weekends.

State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury. After assessing the extent of the injury or infection a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you. Treatment may include medications and supportive care. Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery will be scheduled as needed.
