When You Should Take Your Child to Get an Eye Exam

As a parent, you know it’s important to monitor your child’s health. Eye health is one of the most important components of overall health. A great way of ensuring your child’s eyes are healthy is with a comprehensive eye exam. Indianapolis Optometrists Dr. Amy Walden and Associates provide children pre-kindergarten and up with comprehensive eye exams using state of the art technology to ensure optimal health.

When Should I Take My Child To The Eye Doctor?

Many people question when it’s best for their child to come in for an eye exam. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that all kids get an eye exam before starting Kindergarten, or sooner if problems are noticed.

As your child becomes older, it is important to bring them in for regular appointments with your Indianapolis Optometrists. Even if you child doesn’t have any sight issues, still schedule an appointment. If you notice frequent squinting, bring them in soon. Visiting the eye doctor at a young age will help your child get used to visiting the eye doctor as they grow.

Identifying vision problems as early as possible is important. As a parent, you can help ensure a lifetime of good eye health by starting with pre-Kindergarten eye exams and staying consistent with eye doctor visits throughout the years.
