Infants and young children learn by observing the world around them. In fact, nearly 80 percent of what a child understands and learns is visually experienced.
If you notice your baby’s eyes turning outward or inward (lasting more than a few seconds) or any other sign of an eye problem, please contact us to schedule an appointment for your child as soon as possible. If not, keep this timetable in mind–we recommend your child have their eyes and vision regularly examined at 6 months, age 3, and then during the summer before 1st grade.
Your optometrist has the skills, knowledge, and tools to give young children a thorough, comprehensive eye exam in a comfortable and fun environment.
