Infants and children are recommended to get eye examinations by an eye at 6 months, 2-3 years, and 5 years of age. However, if a child has a family history of eye diseases, or is a risk of eye pathology then they should be examined earlier.

 

 

The caregiver, typically mother or father, can often notice usual vision symptoms that can be of concern. If a child is bumping into objects, covering an eye, excessively rubbing eyes, has a wandering eye or eye turn, tilting head, tears, has a white pupil, or unable to see distant objects (like a bird or the moon) then the child should be taken to an eye doctor. These signs are often indications that the child can possible have an eye condition that requires glasses or other forms of treatment.
