At Optique, we aim to provide you with outstanding care and attention to your vision needs. We believe that caring for your child’s vision is just as important. As with adults, children should have an annual eye exam as young as possible. We work closely with your child to ensure he or she has a relaxed, fun experience. Pediatric optometry should always be sought by a professional with the experience to guide you. Our team is ready to help you.
When Should Your Child See an Optometrist?
It’s never too early to have your child’s eyes evaluated by our optometrist in Dallas. The American Optometric Association recommends infants having their first exam by the age of six months. During this initial eye exam, we can spot any structural concerns that may impact your child’s vision or eye development.
Then, when your child reaches the age of three, he or she should have another comprehensive eye exam. By the time your child reaches school age, he or she should receive annual eye exams like you do. It’s important for your child to see this type of routine examination so that we can spot any concerns as early as possible.
Early Treatment Is Essential
It’s important to have vision problems and eye structural concerns addressed early on. When a child’s vision is not as good as it should be, it can impact his or her development. It can impact a child at school when he or she cannot read alone or see the teacher. And, even in younger children, it is easy to miss key problems, such as a lazy eye. With routine eye exams, our team can help to ensure your child’s vision remains the best it can be.
