Children’s Eye Exams

Children rely on their vision to help them learn and play. When a child can’t see properly, their development can suffer. Regular eye exams are important to ensure that your child’s eyes are healthy and their vision is working correctly, allowing them to reach their full potential.

Children’s Vision Problems

Children aren’t always able to tell us that something is wrong, so parents and caregivers need to keep an eye out for potential vision problems. If your child is experiencing vision problems, it is vital that any issues are identified and corrected as soon as possible.

Untreated visual problems can impact your child’s development and hinder their learning both inside and outside the classroom.

Here are a few symptoms that may indicate your child has a visual problem:

  • Squinting
  • Excessive eye rubbing or blinking
  • Short attention span
  • Avoiding reading or other close up activities
  • Frequent headaches
  • Covering one eye
  • Tilting their head to one side
  • Holding reading material close to their face
  • Double vision
  • A misaligned eye
  • Losing their place while reading

If you think your child might have vision problems make an appointment for an eye exam as soon as possible.

Children’s Eye Exam Schedule

The American Optometric Association recommends that children visit their eye doctor for the first time, between the ages of 6 and 12 months old. Children should have their second eye exam between the ages of 3 and 5 years old and have at least one more eye exam before they begin first grade. Children should see their eye doctor annually once they start school. However, depending on your child’s vision needs, your eye doctor may recommend that your child undergo an eye exam more frequently than once per year.
