Pediatric eye care

Happy Reader

When should my child see an eye doctor?

  • Infants should receive a comprehensive baseline eye exam between the ages of 6 and 12 months, immediately after the critical period when the eye undergoes rapid and profound changes and is therefore most vulnerable to interference with normal development.

  • Preschoolers should receive at least one in-person, comprehensive eye exam between the ages of 3 and 5 to prevent or diagnose any condition that may have long-term effects.

  • School-aged children (5 to 18 years) should receive a comprehensive exam prior to entering the first grade and annually thereafter.
