How Often Should My Child Have an Eye Exam?

We recommend scheduling your child’s first eye exam around the age of 6 months. Subsequent exams should be conducted yearly thereafter up until the age of 19.

Regular eye checkups during school years are essential. Ideally, school-age kids should have an eye exam once every year—before the start of the school year—to monitor changes as they grow.

What to Expect During Your Child’s Eye Exam

We understand the distinct needs of young patients, and at Eyesis Eyecare, our goal is to provide a child-friendly, positive experience during our pediatric eye exams. 

Our eye exams not only help assess visual acuity but also screen for common childhood eye conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eyes), and refractive errors that can impact learning and overall well-being, such as myopia (nearsightedness).

During an eye exam, we’ll evaluate your child’s ability to see clearly and determine if corrective measures are necessary to meet their visual needs.

Our thorough examination includes a meticulous check of the internal and external structures of the eyes, aimed at detecting any early signs of eye conditions that can be treated to support your child’s development.

We can assess how well your child’s eyes work together, checking for proper coordination and depth perception–vital skills for various activities, including reading and sports.

We can use engaging activities to evaluate your child’s dynamic vision, which is essential for tracking moving objects and maintaining focus.

Our optometrists will discuss myopia control with you and if it is the right option for your child. Our myopia control services are comprehensive, and if you have any questions, our team will be more than happy to help.
