The Importance of Eye Exams for Children

Annual eye exams for children are especially important because your child's eye and vision health can change quickly during these critical stages of development. Many common eye conditions in children, such as lazy eye, can be easily treated and managed if caught early. Unfortunately, when your child doesn't have regular eye exams, it can be difficult to spot symptoms of problems.

Furthermore, an annual eye exam ensures that your child's vision prescription is up-to-date, which is especially important for school-aged children who may otherwise have trouble seeing the blackboard in school. This could ultimately begin to affect your child's academic performance otherwise.

What to Expect at a Child's Eye Exam

Children's eye exams are quick, simple, and painless for your child. The appointment will include a physical examination of the interior and exterior of the eye, as well as testing for common vision conditions like near- and far-sightedness, astigmatism, and other conditions common in children. We will also test the function of the eye in terms of peripheral vision, depth perception, and perception of color to ensure that everything looks normal and that there are no signs of problems. Most exams take no more than about a half hour.
