Children’s Eye Examinations

Taking your child for a comprehensive eye exam at an early age, and maintaining regularly scheduled eye care checkups as they are growing up, is the best way to ensure that your child’s vision development reaches its full potential and to make certain that your child acquires the visual skills needed to fully participate in all activities.

Though many children do well with an eye examination every 2 years, we recommend starting with a baseline examination as early as ages 3-5. If there is a suspicion of a problem or a family history of a problem prior to this, please call our office and we will refer you to a pediatric ophthalmologist.
