What You Need to Know

First of all, we know that kids get a bit nervous when they’re visiting a doctor. To alleviate some of the worries, we create a welcoming atmosphere and engage the kids in some fun while they’re here. Click each question to get more details on children’s eye exams.

Your child’s eye exam frequency will depend on certain visual milestones, age, and risk factors. For low-risk or asymptomatic kids, we align with the following guidelines set out by the American Optometric Association:

  • 0 to 2 years old: Baby’s first eye exam should be done between 6 to 12 months
  • 3 to 5 years old: Have at least 1 eye exam during this period
  • 6 to 17 years old: Have at least 1 eye exam per year

We may recommend more frequent eye exams for children with risk factors like a family history of eye disease, dealing with a high refractive error, and other factors. This way, we can detect and monitor changes to their vision as they happen rather than waiting until they become a problem.

A kid’s eye exam is much more thorough than a vision screening. We’ll perform a series of tests based on their age and do a comprehensive assessment of your child’s overall eye health to ensure their eyes are developing properly. No matter what age our patients are, we consider all individual factors and create a treatment plan based on their needs.

Some of the most common pediatric eye conditions we see include:

If you’re worried that your child may have a vision issue, or if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. We’re glad to assist you in finding suitable solutions to improve your child’s visual abilities.
