80% of learning is visual and the visual system has a critical period of development which lasts about the first 7-8 years of their lives. Considering the importance of early intervention, a child should have a comprehensive exam before their second birthday, and yearly exams once they start school.

Non-Traditional Symptoms:

  • Avoidance of reading or homework
  • Frequently loses their place when reading
  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Poor penmanship
  • Wandering (lazy) eye or abnormal head tilts

If you have questions, a routine eye exam is an easy way to get answers regarding your child’s vision.
