Lovelight Pediatrics offers a full array of services to help your child maintain optimal health. You can read more on this page about specific services.
Services we offer include:
From birth through age 21, we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommendations for well child care. From growth & developmental monitoring, to evaluations for specific parent concerns, these visits are an important part of a healthy childhood. We perform yearly vision & hearing evaluations and follow the CDC's vaccination schedule. We also provide counseling & anticipatory guidance that is in line with the AAP's Bright Futures program.
- Vision screening for infants: Lovelight is proud to offer vision testing in children aged 1-5 years old using photoscreening. Photoscreening is an emerging technology which allows for the detection of visual impairment in those who are too young to be tested using a vision chart. Vision impairment is the #1 disabling childhood condition in the United States, and can lead to blindness and learning disabilities. If detected *early*, it is almost always *treatable*. We believe that every child has a right to early screening & detection. We perform vision photoscreening yearly at the appropriate well child visits. Please feel free to ask more about this service!
- On-site lead & hemoglobin collection: The state of Maryland requires that all 1- and 2-year-olds be tested for both anemia and lead poisoning. These tests are important, and often deferred or delayed by families when a blood draw is necessary. At Lovelight, we use a fingerstick collection technique, which is tolerated extremely well by infants. Our hemoglobin is resulted during your visit in-house, and lead results (which are sent to LabCorp for processing) are usually available within 48 hours.
