How early in life can a child's eyes be examined?
Any age, even in the newborn nursery. We are able to perform a comprehensive eye exam on infants and also provide vision tests for those three months and older.
When is the best time to examine a child's eyes after they have started crossing?
Within a few months of when it first occurs. Intermittent crossing of the eyes is only normal under six months of age.
When is the best time for routine eye exams?
Between four and five years of age. Any vision problems that might affect schoolwork may be detected. Lazy vision (amblyopia) may also be occurring without complaints. For more information, please visit the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.
