Pediatric Eye Exams

Many people do not realize that children are at risk for eye disease. Strabismus, Amblyopia, refractive error or retinoblastoma can be present in young children. It is important to have your child examined by an optometrist to rule out visually devastating diseases. The recommendation by the American Optometric Society is to have your child examined between 6 months and 1 year.
