Find an Eyecare Provider

An eye exam is done by an eye care professional and includes a series of tests that measures a child’s vision plus overall eye function and health. The vision exam also detects vision problems and eye disease. During the exam, correction such as eyeglasses, treatment for vision problems or eye disease may be prescribed.

A professional eye examination for every child, including those who do not show any signs of eye trouble, is recommended shortly after birth, at 6 months of age, before entering school (age 3 or 4) and periodically throughout the school years. Eye exams are extremely important since some eye problems have no signs or symptoms. As a child continues to grow, the eyes continue to change and there are more visual demands that may bring out some potential problems.
