When Should My Child Have Their First Eye Exam?

It’s recommended that your child have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months, again at age 3, and before entering school at age 5 or 6.

How Often Should Children Have Eye Exams?

After the initial exams, children with no vision correction needs should have an eye exam every 1-2 years. Those who need glasses or contact lenses should have an exam annually or as recommended.

What Are the Signs of Vision Problems in Children?

Common signs include squinting, tilting the head to see better, frequent eye rubbing, and sitting too close to the TV.

Can Children Wear Contact Lenses?

Yes, children can wear contact lenses, and the appropriate age can vary. It’s essential to consult with an eye care professional for personalized advice.

What Should I Do If My Child Gets Something in Their Eye?

Do not let them rub their eye. Rinse the eye with cool water or use a saline solution. If the object doesn’t come out, seek immediate medical attention.
