Children's Eye Exams
When should you bring your child in for their first eye exam?
- During the first 3 years of life, screening examinations for visual acuity, eye alignment and ocular health should be performed.
- Your child's screenings can be performed by by your child's pediatrician or a pediatric ophthalmologist.
- If your child has a family history of eye or vision problems, was born premature or you have noticed a problem, make sure to obtain a complete eye assessment by a pediatric optometrist or ophthalmologist.
- Our doctors will start examining your child at age 3. By 3 years of age, the average child will usually cooperate for an effective assessment of the visual and ocular systems.
