Since 80% of what children learn in school is visual, regular eye exams can also help prevent vision problems from impacting their academic development. According to The Canadian Association of Optometrists, children should have their first annual eye exam between 6 and 9 months old. However, if you are concerned about your children’s vision, it’s best to bring them in sooner.
When you take your child to our practice for an eye exam, we look for potential vision problems and ocular health risks by asking questions and running tests. At the end of the exam, we’ll recommend the next steps for treating or managing any issues we’ve uncovered.
