Kid's Optical

Did you know 80% of what we learn is through our visual system?

Choosing glasses for your child

Your child is developing his or her vision before they reach school age. Wearing glasses can help them enjoy the process of learning and since 80% of our learning is visual, It is important for them to want to wear their new glasses. Using the right lens designs and materials will make your child’s glasses look and feel good as well as creating the type of vision that will help develop good vision skills. We are able to work with many pediatric vision problems resulting from amblyopia, Down Syndrome, Marfans and normal refractive errors.

Some children may pass the vision screenings at the pediatricians and school nurses office, but may be accommodating to see clearly. If your eyes are in a constant state of working, it can create headaches, eye strain, and discomfort. It is hard for you to concentrate if you are exerting a lot of effort and that is the reason many children with undetected vision issues are coded with learning disorders.

Children's lens package

Children’s eyewear should safe, lightweight and provide clear comfortable vision. That is why our kids lens package always have polycarbonate or trivex lenses that provide superior impact resistance and are light weight. We also include the hardest scratch resistant lens coating and the option of an Anti-reflective coating or Recharge blue light Anti-reflective coating.

The Recharge anti-reflective coating helps block out some of the potentially harmful blue light emitted by many of our digital devices. Studies have shown blue light can disrupt our sleep patterns causing many other health issues. Ask our opticians about Hoya Recharge coatings and see if they are appropriate for your child.

Lions Club Children's Vision Screening

North Country Eye Care is proud to support the Lions Club in their mission to provide clear vision to our community. One of the most important services the Lions Club provides are children's vision screenings. It has been found that undetected vision problems can slow the educational development for children in their early years. In an effort to give our children the best chance of academic and athletic success, our local Lions Clubs try to screen as many preschool aged children as possible. However, even if your child has had a vision screening, it is recommended to have your child have a comprehensive exam before they enter school.

Having good vision will make learning easier and more enjoyable.


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending that routine eye care services be postponed until the COVID-19 crisis is under control. Based on this recommendation and in an abundance of caution, we at North Country Eye Care have decided to close our office to routine eye care as of 6 p.m. on Friday, March 20. We will remain available for urgent eye care services as needed. Our doctors will be on-call to provide such services. If you need our medical eye care services or have an urgent concern, please call or text our office at (603) 678-4759. As of now, we plan to have one of our team answering phone calls during the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We can also be reached via email at We will get back to you as quickly as possible.

We hope to be able to resume hours in late April, but this is subject to change. We will contact our patients when we are able to resume office hours. Thank you for your understanding at this challenging time.

We appreciate all of our patients and customers. We wish you all the best. Thank you for your trust in us. We hope to be back soon!
