Pediatric eye exams in Olathe, KS
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 screened at 6 months of age, at age 3 and again at the beginning of school. Children with no vision problems or risk factors for eye or vision problems should continue to be screened each year at school.
Children with vision problems or existing risk factors should have their eyes examined more frequently. Common risk factors for vision problems include:
- premature birth
- development delays
- Crossed or crossed eyes
- Family history of ocular disease
- History of eye injuries
- Another 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.
