Vision exams for children

Vision exams for children

Children are expected to take their first recommended eye exams already at 6 months. All children 2-3 years of age should have their eyes checked, and then checked again before going to school. However, the ophthalmologists and optometrists at KSA recommend that children take eye exams more often, as many eye problems are easy to fix when discovered at an early stage.

We recommend checking children’s vision in every 1-2 years as their organism develops rapidly and a couple years without checkups can leave youngsters with a poor vision. Amblyopia, also known as the lazy eye, is easily treated when discovered early. Many adults would not need to wear glasses if they had had regular eye exams as a child.

We examine children and youngsters from 6 months to 17 years of age. We conduct thorough eye exams to determine if a child's vision is free of pathological changes and they meet vision quality of their age norm. Children's eyes and vision are very plastic and the correction of minor and major errors is easier than in adults.
