Parents often question when the best time would be to schedule their children’s first eye exam. The American Optometric Association recommends infants have an initial eye exam at 6 months. If healthy and there is no correction needed, an additional exam at age 3 and every 2 years moving forward is recommended.

As with any illness, it is best the problem be diagnosed and treated as early as possible. Being proactive in your child’s eye health care can make all the difference. Call Southern Utah Eye Care & Optical today at (435) 673-3201 to schedule your child’s pediatric eye exam.
