When should my child have their first eye exam?
Early detection and treatment of vision problems may help a child reach his or her full potential. School vision screenings are limited and may fail to detect problems. Just reading an eye chart is not enough. Your family eye doctor is the most reliable source of vision care for your children. We recommend eye examinations for children beginning at the age of four for routine eye care, earlier if you notice that your child is having any visual problems. Our office is equipped with specialized equipment to aid the doctor in determining your child’s vision needs. See our Children’s Package coupon in the promotions page.
