The American Academy of Ophthalmology has named August as the Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. It’s recommended that you have your baby’s eyes examined early in life, at about six months of age, and then again prior to starting school. Regular eye examinations throughout their school years will help ensure any eye problems are corrected in a timely manner. Diverse examination techniques are used, based upon the age of the child, and their ability to respond. All eye examinations are not created equal, so make sure that your eye care provider is well versed in checking for problems in young children. An ophthalmologist will use a variety of high-tech equipment to assess what the child sees, as well as diagnosing vision irregularities. Eye problems can affect young children’s ability to learn, and some problems become uncorrectable if you wait too long.
