First Eye Exam
Did you know your child’s eyes could develop problems long before you notice them? Problems can begin as early as infancy and progress during school-age years, often with little to no obvious outward signs. As your child reaches growth milestones, his or her eyesight could change too. That’s why the American Optometric Association recommends that children should have their first eye examination by six months of age, and a second eye exam when they are two to five years old.
If your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms, including:
- Sensitivity to light or bright areas
- Squinting, tilting the head, or rubbing the eyes frequently
- An unusually short attention span
- Avoiding coloring, puzzles, or other highly detailed activities
- Problems with riding a bike, catching a ball, or other hand-eye coordination activities
And they have not had an eye exam, please call and schedule a comprehensive exam as soon as possible. Our doctors provide complete eye care services, including finding accurate prescriptions, for all children from infancy and older.
