Good vision helps children reach their full potential. The American Optometric Association recommends that children have their first eye exam at 6 months of age to ensure that their eyes are developing normally. After this initial visit, doctors recommend that you bring your child for a second eye exam every year or at least by age 2 or 3, and then again before they start school.
Below are some common signs that your child may have vision problems:
Even with all these signs, your child may not complain if their vision is blurry! An eye exam, not a vision screening, is important to evaluate for amblyopia, commonly known as a “lazy eye,” which may have permanent effects on a child’s vision.
