Pediatric Vision Care

 

As a parent, you may wonder whether your preschooler has a vision problem or when you should schedule your child's first eye exam.

 

Eye exams for children are extremely important, because 5 to 10 percent of preschoolers and 25 percent of school-aged children have vision problems.* Early identification of a child's vision problem can be crucial because children often are more responsive to treatment when problems are diagnosed early.

 

According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age. Children then should have additional eye exams at age 3, and just before they enter the first grade — at about age 5 or 6.

 

For school-aged children, the AOA recommends an eye exam every two years if no vision correction is required. Children who need eyeglasses or contact lenses should be examined annually or as recommended by their optometrist or ophthalmologist.

 

Early eye exams also are important because children need the following basic skills related to good eyesight for learning:

 

  • Near vision
  • Distance vision
  • Binocular (two eyes) coordination
  • Eye movement skills
  • Focusing skills
  • Peripheral awareness
  • Hand-eye coordination

For these reasons, some states require a mandatory eye exam for all children entering school for the first time.

 

 

Strive to be the best and become the best.
