When to bring your kids for their first eye exam?
It is recommended that children have their first comprehensive eye exam at around six months of age. This exam can help to detect any early signs of eye problems, such as a lazy eye or crossed eyes, and ensure that your child's eyes are developing properly.
After the initial exam, it is recommended that children have another comprehensive eye exam at around age three, and then again before starting school, around age five or six. These exams can help to detect and treat any vision problems early on, which can be important for your child's academic and social development.
If your child has a family history of eye problems or other risk factors, such as premature birth or a history of developmental delays, it may be recommended that they have more frequent eye exams.
