Child Eye Care

It’s difficult to know if and when your child should see an eye doctor. However, most experts agree that eye exams performed during regular well-child visits help protect your child’s vision and provide useful information about his or her eye health.

The area of a child’s brain responsible for vision is still developing from birth to 10 years of age. That is why it is critical to have your child’s eyes checked on a regular basis, as many eye disorders and vision problems can be successfully treated if detected early on.

When should I start taking my baby for regular vision tests?

Right after birth, newborn babies’ eyes are examined for the first time. During each well-child visit, your child’s pediatrician will then perform a screening examination of your child’s eyes and vision.

When your child is old enough to cooperate (usually at 3 years of age and older), they will be tested by being asked to provide feedback from looking at an eye chart. If your child’s regular doctor notices any vision or eye problems, he or she will be referred to an appropriate eye doctor, such as an ophthalmologist or optometrist.

Parents frequently worry that their child is too young to fully cooperate with an eye exam or that they cannot read letters, but most pediatric eye doctors get creative with a variety of kid-friendly techniques such as toys, games, and videos to ensure a thorough exam.
