  • A family history of early childhood vision problems
  • Disinterest in reading or viewing distant objects
  • Complaining of headaches
  • Receiving lower grades than normal
  • Squinting, turning the head in an unusual manner, or sitting too close while watching television

 When Should Your Child Have Their First Eye Exam?

Children’s eyes grow and change quickly in their first few years of life. Eye exams at a young age are extremely important to make sure that a child’s eyes and vision are developing normally. Certain childhood vision problems must be caught early, as they cannot be properly fixed later in life. The American Optometric Association recommends infants undergo a comprehensive eye examination at six months of age. Additional check-ups are recommended at age three, and immediately before entering first grade. So, don’t wait any longer to meet with an eye doctor for kids. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Shafran today!
