August is the month to say farewell to long summer nights and welcome school sessions. In preparation for back to school, we’re featuring practice designs that specialize in pediatrics and/or include kid-friendly spaces.
Andrea Horne, OD, has two kids so she knows what it’s like to have to manage a doctor’s visit with children. She designed a space just for kids so “they have a place to play while mom and dad shops.” See more.
Megan Sis, OD, MS, FAAO, opened her own practice to focus on pediatric vision therapy care. The office has a palette of orange, green and blue, pop arts of brightly colored animals wearing eyeglasses and a cozy nook for children to wait for their appointment. See more.
Ashley S. Reddell, OD, FCOVD, and her husband, Jonathan Reddell, OD, have a bright and colorful mural that depicts multicultural, bespectacled children and an OD performing an exam. The family practice and kids’ location are connected by an interior hallway, and there’s a bar that serves up Capri Suns for toy coins children can earn. See more.
Karly Woodrich, OD, has been exploring the area of myopia management, a recent interest that she hopes will become a passion working with her pediatric patient base. The office design is airy, bright, clean and cheery, and there’s a floor-to-ceiling moss green wall decked with illuminated script reading: See the Bright Side, a popular photo spot. See more.
