It is recommended by the American Optometric Association (AOA) that infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 MONTHS of age. Our very own Dr. Kristin Nelson weighs in… “Sometimes there are warning signs that might prompt screening much earlier such as family or medical history. Children should then receive ADDITIONAL EXAMS at ages 3, 5 and 6, or as issues present. Many common eye problems first develop in young, school-aged children. If left undiagnosed and untreated, these visual problems can disrupt a child’s ability to pay attention in class. Unfortunately, in some cases, children with visual problems end up being misdiagnosed with ADD/ADHD or another type of learning disorder. Hence, it is essential to make sure that your child’s eyesight is in top condition. This ensures that all of their unique needs are met, and that they are able to participate to the best of their ability in school and other activities.”
