CarabelloDr. Carabello Answers Your Eye Care Questions

At what age should my child have his/her eyes examined?

Eye exams for children should start between 6mos-1 year old. There is a nation-wide program called InfantSee ( where participating providers offer a FREE eye exam to children in this age group to make sure the eyes are developing properly.

If there are no issues detected, an exam at 3 and 5 years old is sufficient to make sure the eyes are still developing properly for preschool and kindergarten.

Since babies & toddlers have no way of knowing if what they see is “normal” and “clear” or not, having a comprehensive eye exam is the best way to ensure their eyes and vision is developing properly. Any ocular issues are best addressed sooner rather than later because 80% of learning takes place through vision in kids!
