The Eye Exam
The American Optometric Association recommends that children undergo one eye exam between 6 and 12 months of age, then once again between the ages of 3 and 5, and then annually between the ages of 6 and 17.
This frequency allows us to check that your child’s eyes are developing correctly. During these exams, we look at the eyes’ structure and function using high-tech, but non-invasive, optometric equipment to take a closer look at each eye’s retina, macula, and optic nerve.
We also test their visual acuity, eye teaming or binocular vision, and color vision. Ocular conditions like strabismus (crossed eyes), amblyopia (lazy eye), and myopia (nearsightedness) can be mitigated with early detection.
