Pediatric Eye Exams

Routine pediatric eye exams should start at 6 months of age and should be done annually to ensure your baby’s eyes are healthy, the eye muscle movements and alignment are developing properly and that the eyes are focusing together.


Routine pediatric eye exams should ideally begin at 6 months of age.

It’s recommended to start routine pediatric eye exams at 6 months old. Following this, annual eye exams are advised for children to facilitate the early identification of conditions like refractive errors and eye misalignment, which can help prevent amblyopia, commonly referred to as lazy eye. Our care extends through the various stages of your child’s visual development, allowing us to monitor and identify any changes in eye health, including misalignment, refractive issues, and other visual disorders. Early detection plays a critical role in the successful treatment of many vision problems.

The scope of our examinations is comprehensive and may cover:

  • The movement and alignment of eye muscles
  • Clarity of vision at different distances
  • Ability to perceive depth
  • Color vision testing
  • Reaction of pupils to light
  • Screening for refractive errors
  • Assessment of overall eye health
