PEDIATRIC AND INFANT EXAM
Your child is never too young to have their eyes examined. Vision problems can often be mistaken for behavioral issues. Learning, attention span can all be related to deficiencies in a child's ability to coordinate their eyes as a team.
According to the American Optometric Association, infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age. Our doctors participate in a program that provides a one-time, comprehensive eye assessment to infants in their first year at no cost. This first well-child vision assessment for babies is known as InfantSEE®.
Children then should have additional eye exams at age 3, and just before they enter the first grade at about age 5.
