Parents often assume that eye exams can’t be performed until their child can recognize letters. As InfantSEE® providers, however, we actually examine the eyes of patients as young as 6 months of age. If no concerns arise at this first visit, we recommend another visit at age 3, and annually thereafter. During these exam, we evaluate how the muscles that control and move the eyes are working, how healthy the eyes look, and even take prescription measurements. Early intervention plays a vital role in a child’s development, learning and overall success.
