Pediatric Eye Exam in Fort Collins, CO
Some experts estimate that between 5% and 10% of preschoolers and 25% of school-age children have vision problems. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), all children should be examined at 6 months of age, at the age of 3 years and again at the beginning of school. Children without vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should continue to test each year at school.
Children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently. Common risk factors for vision problems include:
- premature birth
- developmental delays
- Crossed or crossed eyes
- Family history of eye disease
- History of eye injuries
- Other illness or physical illness
The AOA recommends that children who wear glasses or contact lenses should have their eyes examined at least every 12 months or according to the instructions of their ophthalmologist.
