Children should get eyes checked frequently

Between ages one and two, it’s important for a child to develop good hand-eye coordination and depth perception.

There are activities that can help improve these essential visual skills, such as playing with building blocks or balls of any shape and size.

Be alert for symptoms that may indicate your child has a visual problem:

- red, itchy or watering eyes;

- sensitivity to light;

- an eye that consistently turns in or out;

- squinting, rubbing the eyes, or excessive blinking;

- a lack of concentration;

- covering or closing one eye;

- irritability or short attention span;

- holding objects too close;

- avoiding books and television; and

- visible frustration or grimacing.

Protect your child’s vision. If you notice any of these symptoms, book an eye exam with a doctor of optometry.

Your child should have a complete optometric eye exam at six months, before starting kindergarten, and annually throughout the school years to ensure optimal eye health and developmental progress.
