The American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby's first eye assessment at 6 months. Dr. James Sinoway will test for:
- excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
- eye movement ability
- eye health problems
These problems are not common, but it is important to identify children who have them at this young age. Vision development and eye health problems are easier to correct if treatment begins early.
