Parents frequently wonder how often, or when, their children need eye exams. As discussed in this brief video, there are three scenarios in which you should schedule a formal eye exam for your child:
- Your child has a symptom or sign of a vision/eye problem, such as blurry vision, an eye that turns in or drifts out, a change in the appearance of the eye, etc.
- A physician or teacher is concerned about your child's vision. This is often due to difficulty with a routine vision screening examination.
- There is a family history of childhood eye problems.
If you're concerned about a possible eye problem for your son or daughter, schedule an appointment -- I'd be happy to meet you, discuss your concerns, and do a complete eye examination.
