WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD HAVE THEIR EYES CHECKED?

Childhood is an important time in the development of the eyes, and it’s vital that children are seen early and regularly. A child’s eyes continue to develop until around the age of 12. During these formative years, many problems that would otherwise result in lifelong vision deficiencies can be diagnosed and corrected.

Eye exams for children should begin before the age of 3, and kids should be seen yearly until at least the age of 18, as changes to the vision can occur rapidly during these years.
