Importance of Pediatric Eye Exams

Pediatric Eye Exams with Our Fair Oaks Optometrist

Eye exams are an important part of regular health care for the whole family. Your vision shouldn't be taken for granted and vigilant care is the best way to protect it. This care should start early on, so problems can be caught and corrected right way and before they get worse.

How Important Are Eye Exams For Children?

Your children learn and develop through all their senses, Vision is one of those senses and a big part of how your child learns about the world around them. Vision is an integral part of their successful education as well. This is why it's so important to be sure their vision is the best it can be. The sooner you begin regular eye exams for your children, the better.

It's estimated that up to 10% of preschoolers have vision problems, and 25% of school-age children. Unaddressed vision problems can cause significant delays in your child's learning, so it is important to have them examined early and regularly.

Your child should have their first comprehensive vision exam around six months of age, and again at around three years old. The next exam should be before starting kindergarten, with subsequent exams every other year unless there are problems which require more frequent screening.

Your eye doctor in Fair Oaks will be able to give you more information and answer any questions you may have about your child's vision. Make yearly exams part of your family's overall health care.
