You may think there’s nothing wrong with your child’s eyesight. You may even take it for granted that everything is fine, particularly because you hear no complaints from your child. But vision problems in young ones can present a special challenge, impacting their social interactions and academic performance. That’s why it’s important for parents to be vigilant and to recognize the potential warning signs in their child and seek a professional evaluation.
Our warm and friendly team is skilled in working with children of all ages. With our state-of-the art diagnostics, we will evaluate your child’s vision to determine whether there is a problem that needs intervention.
Typically, children should have their first eye exam when they’re six months old, then again at age 3, and then at about age 5 or 6. School-aged children should have an eye exam at least every two years if no vision correction is required. Children who need eyeglasses should be examined on a yearly basis.
Signs your child may need glasses:
- squinting often
- tilting head or covering one eye
- sitting too close to the television or holding hand-held devices too close to the eyes
- rubbing eyes excessively
- complaining of frequent headaches or eye pain
- having difficulty concentrating on schoolwork
