What Age Should My Child Have Their First Eye Exam?

If you suspect there is a problem, you should definitely bring them in at any age. Otherwise, the general guideline for a pediatric exam is between the ages of 3-4. One of the most important factors of a pediatric exam is to identify conditions that are treatable at an early age.

How Often Does My Child Need an Eye Exam?

Following your child’s initial eye examination, it is highly recommended that you schedule an annual eye exam for your child with an optometrist in Los Angeles. If there is a problem with your child’s vision or if your child develops a health problem that may affect their vision, you should talk with their optometrist about the frequency of examinations.

What Does an Eye Exam in Los Angeles Include?

At Westchester Eye Care Center in Los Angeles, we offer comprehensive eye care for children that include a range of tests to determine the health of their eyes, to detect any signs of eye diseases and to get an accurate prescription to correct their vision if needed. A pediatric exam evaluates:

Testimonial

"Dr. T is very thorough with her eye exams. She asks all the right questions with what you need. She takes her time with her patients making sure they get what they need and get to know them. She's very professional but also approachable. You can ask her any eye related issues and she'll have answers for you. If she doesn't have an answer, which doesn't happen often, she'll get the right information for you. She also doesn't try to up sell you with what you don't need. I would recommend her to all my family and friends. In fact I've already done so and they're all very satisfied with the service."
