Pediatric eye care (children under 7)

It's important for all children to have regular eye examinations, even if there doesn't seem to be a problem. This is because many eye and vision problems can't be detected just by observing your child. But if vision problems go untreated, they may slow your child's visual development and learning.

We offer eye care for babies and young children under the age of 7. Older children are welcome at our Primary Care Clinics. The optometrists in our Pediatric Clinic specialize in children's eye care. They have even developed ways to test vision in children who are too young to read an eye chart.

Did you know?

Children should have their first eye examination when they are between 6 to 9 months old because this is often when symptoms of serious eye conditions first appear.
