Important Information to Know
Newborns should have their first eye exam between 6 and 9 months or as prescribed by an optometrist. Preschool children between 2 and 5 should have at least one eye exam before they start school. Once children start school, they should have an eye exam every year.
Vision Loss Is Preventable
75% of vision loss is preventable, and many forms of developing eye conditions, such as strabismus or amblyopia, can be treated effectively when detected early. Without treatments, these childhood conditions just get worse and develop into vision problems that can affect your child’s ability to learn.

Eye Exams Say What Your Child Can’t
Your child may not know how to articulate the problems they have with their vision. Eye conditions often develop slowly, so your child may not actually realize they even have a vision problem in the first place.
Eye exams are objective, enabling us to gain a clear perspective on your child’s eye health.
