Pediatric Optometry

Parents often ask us about the right age for a first eye doctor appointment. The answer always surprises them, and it may surprise you: six months.

Good vision is essential to early childhood development. If your child is unable to see clearly, she may lose her natural sense of curiosity and desire to learn before either have had the chance to fully emerge.

During exams for infants, doctors are mainly watching to see if your child's eyes track objects well. This early screening can help detect eye alignment problems, early vision problems, early retinopathies and other issues. Later, doctors will determine whether your child is able to see clearly on her own, or whether she needs corrective lenses.

Woolf & Woolf participates in pediatric eye programs for infants under the American Optometric Association InfantSEE program. For more information or to schedule an appointment for your infant, please contact our office.
