Pediatric Eye Exam
Uncorrected eye heath problems or vision can lead to needless struggles in the life of a child. Their academic, social or athletic lives can be impacted if vision is not at its best. Children as young as 6 months old can be seen for their first eye appointments.
Unless recommended by our optometrists, or barring any underlining conditions, their next appointment can wait till 3 years of age. With developing hand eye coordination and advancing motor skills this is the perfect time to detect any vision impairments.
Barring any concerns or recommendations the next visit can occur around the time a child begins school. Their eyes will be in continual use in the classroom and on the playground. It is imperative to catch any vision impairments or conditions to ensure your child can succeed in school.
If you notice your child frequently doing the following be sure to mention it to their optometrist:
- Rubbing of eyes
- Holding reading material close to face
- Turning or tilting head to use one eye
- Avoiding close work
