Protect Your Child’s Vision With Regular Children’s Eye Exams
No matter how young or old your children are, you need to know for certain that their vision is at its best. Scheduling regular children’s eye exams at Opti-Care is the best way to keep up with any changes that may affect their health and lifestyle.
Vision Screenings for Children and Teens
The key to preventing vision problems in children is early detection. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends for you to have your child’s vision checked at six months, three years old, and when they turn five or six years old. Once your child reaches six years of age, they should have their vision checked once every two years, if no corrective eyewear is needed. If glasses or contact lenses are worn, they should have their vision checked every year.
Common vision problems that children often experience include:
- Lazy eye
- Crossed eyes
- Blurry vision
- Reading difficulties
If your child needs prescription glasses, we carry variety of colorful and stylish frames for them to choose from. Letting your child pick their new eyewear is a great way to inspire pride and confidence about their vision.
Scheduling Kid’s Eye Exams
When scheduling your child’s eye exam, choose an appointment time when they are alert and in a good mood. Be sure to fill out all medical and vision history questionnaires as accurately as you can. Don’t be afraid to ask your child about their vision if necessary. Any and all information that you provide will be used to aid the eye doctor in diagnosing and treating any vision problems your child may have.
