Did you know that an annual eye exam for children is as important as a physical at the pediatrician? Your kids need healthy eyes to reach their full potential. Children's eyes need to be examined for proper development, as well as for early detection of vision issues. Eye exams can also catch other health issues, like diabetes, before they cause further complications. Children should have an eye exam once a year, starting at six months old. Healthy eyes are vital to children's physical, mental, and emotional development.
