Today, we have an eye-health related question for you:
Q: At what age should my child first have their eyes examined?
A: According to our partners at the American Optometric Association (AOA), it is said that children should be scheduled to have their first-ever eye exam at approximately six months of age. Another exam should come at three years of age, and then when they begin school.
From school-age through 18, these exams should continue every two years until the child is 18.
However, children who are found to experience vision issues should be examined more frequently.
