Pediatric Eye Exams

Doctors of optometry recommend that babies have their first eye exam between six and twelve months of age, to ensure their eyes are healthy, developing accordingly to normal parameters for their age.

Crossed eyes (also known as strabismus), needs to be treated with glasses, prisms, or vision therapy, as soon as possible. If left untreated, it can lead to one eye unable to function normally and may result in the development of amblyopia (lazy eye). And this is one of the various eye conditions that can be identified during the first eye exam.

After the first eye exam, it recommended to do another one between 2 and 5 years old, and yearly after that.
