We provide our exams in a comfortable environment where we can teach your child about the importance of their vision. Visit Family Vision Care; we can help care for your child’s eye health and vision.

Good Vision Is Essential as Your Child Develops

The first 18 years of your child’s life are full of constant growth and learning as they go through school and interact with others. Your child’s vision is essential as they learn, read, draw, and play, developing alongside them as they grow. 

With how important your child’s vision is, an undiagnosed eye condition can affect their development. Vision problems can make learning difficult and stressful, affecting your child’s academic performance. 

These problems can impact your child’s development. We can identify these eye conditions during a comprehensive eye exam.  Common vision problems in children include: 

  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Astigmatism
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes)

Watch Out for Signs of an Eye Problem

Eye conditions can develop at an early age, meaning your child may be used to a vision problem by the time they’re reading and writing. If they have had a problem for a long time, they may assume their vision is normal. 

Keeping an eye out for signs of vision problems in your child can help you know if it’s time for an eye exam. 

Some signs your child may be struggling with a vision problem include: 

  • Consistently sitting too close to the television
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Frequent eye rubbing
  • Frequent squinting
  • Headaches
  • Struggles with seeing far away images
  • Trouble with reading

How Often Should Your Child Visit The Eye Doctor?

Regular eye exams are important as your child grows to help catch eye problems early and determine if their eyes are working well. Their eye exams become more comprehensive as they develop more visual skills and reach different visual milestones

The American Optometric Association recommends the following schedule for children’s eye exams: 

  • First exam between 6–12 months old
  • At least one exam between 3–5 years old
  • Annual eye exams for ages 6–18

We may need to see your child more frequently if there’s a risk of an eye or medical condition affecting their vision. During your child’s eye exam, we can recommend an ideal exam schedule for your child.
