Pediatric Eye Exams
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that vision screenings start at age 3 and occur every 1 to 2 years to detect vision problems that need to be addressed early to prevent permanently reduced vision.
Reduced vision can affect children not only academically, but also socially. Common symptoms may include headaches, avoiding reading and/or school work, and poor school performance. An eye exam will evaluate vision as well as focusing ability, how well the eyes work together, and the health of the eyes themselves.
