Although some may assume children have near-perfect vision, it is important for kids to get their eyes regularly checked out too. It is not enough for kids’ eyes to be seen by their pediatrician or during school check-ups; a professional optometrist is required for a thorough exam. Children should have their first eye exam before the age of four in order to avoid any vision problems from worsening when they begin school. However, if your child is younger and you notice obvious signs of visual discomfort, such as crossed eyes, squinting, and headaches, take your child to an optometrist as soon as you can. At Violet Eyes Optometry, we happily provide children’s eye exams for Lloydminster families.
