Q When should my baby get his/her first eye exam?

According to the guideline of American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), children can have their eyesight checked when they are 6 months old.

Why does my baby have to get his/her eyesight checked?

The first 12 months of life are the period of the most rapid development of vision in the eyes and brain. Any eye health problems or abnormal vision (such as high myopia, farsightedness or astigmatism) can slow down the development of vision, and eventually develop into amblyopia (or lazy eye). Therefore, the attitude of “early diagnosis and early treatment” should be adopted for all vision problems in infants and young children.

Q My child does not understand the English alphabet, and may not understand expressions, is it really suitable for a vision test?

Daddy and Mommy, don’t worry. For children who do not understand the English alphabet, and may not even know how to express, we will use special vision charts and other methods to measure the eyesight of your children. In addition, we will make use of special optical instruments to accurately measure the refractive error of your children even if they do not say a word.
