Signs of Possible Eye Problems in Children

- Tilts head or thrusts head forward
- Trouble reading or doing other close-up work, or seems cranky when doing close-up work
- Hold objects close to eyes to see

If one or more of these signs appear, schedule an appointment to see your eye doctor right away.
When Should My Child Have an Eye Exam?
- Your pediatrician should examine your child’s eyes during the first year of life.
- All children should have a comprehensive eye exam before they start school unless vision problems occur sooner.
- Early diagnosis and treatment of childhood eye disease may prevent vision problems later in life.
At Total Eye Care & Cosmetic Laser Centers, our lifelong commitment to healthy vision starts at a young age with your child’s eyes. The importance of yearly ocular health exams should begin early to ensure your child’s every opportunity to learn and grow normally with no visual limitations.
