How old does my child have to be?

The earlier a problem is detected the more chance there is of successful treatment,

We recommend a comprehensive eye and vision examination

    1. by three years of age,
    1. at five years before they start school and start learning to read,
    1. and at least two yearly during their school years.

Often vision problems can be the reason a child does not perform well at school, for example because they cannot see the board.

Children can be examined at any age, from as young as one week.

Children should be examined at six to twelve months if there is any suspicion that a problem might be present, or if there is ANY family history of “turned” or “lazy” eyes.

The earlier a problem is detected the more chance there is of successful treatment. Children’s eyes have critical periods for development that are most important in the first 8 to 12 years.
