The comprehensive examination performed before children enter school meets the requirements for the pre-kindergarten eye examination required of all children by the State of Illinois.
Taylor Eye Care participates in the InfantSEE® program sponsored by the American Optometric Association. Through InfantSEE®, Dr. Taylor provides a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment to infants in their first year of life, offering early detection of potential eye and vision problems at no cost regardless of income.
