Why is it important?

Our doctors are experienced in treating children of all ages. We are able to examine children as young as 6 months old!

According to the American Optometric Association, it is recommended that children have an eye exam by 6 months old, between the ages of 1 to 3 years old, and then annually as needed.

It is important for children to have an eye exam in order to diagnose any uncorrected refractive error (nearsightedness/myopia, farsightedness/hyperopia, and astigmatism). It is also important to assess their focusing abilities, binocular vision, and ocular health.
