Importance of Children’s Eye Exams 

Did you know that 80% of a child’s learning is visual?

The growth and development of a child are closely tied to their vision health. Since children aren’t always able to identify their vision problems, eye exams are the best way to diagnose any issues. 

With issues such as myopia often starting in childhood, proper correction using glasses or contact lenses can help control myopia. If controlled at an early age, children are likely to have decreased effects on their vision later in life. 

Frequency of Children’s Eye Exams 

As your kids continue to grow, it’s important to ensure their vision is healthy. Visiting for regular eye exams is the best way to diagnose any issues.

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends the following frequency for children’s eye exams:

Infants & Toddlers (Birth to 24 Months)

Your child’s first eye exam is recommended between ages 6 to 9 months.

During this period, your child should have at least one eye exam.

From 6 to 19, your child should visit for an eye exam annually.
