Children should have their first eye exam at about age two, although it's never too early to test a child's vision and eye health. Early detection allows for treatment to begin before the child experiences difficulty in school due to poor vision. Exams test visual acuity, eye tracking, focusing skills, and detect problems such as near- and far-sightedness, amblyopia (lazy eye), crossed eyes, dyslexia, and color blindness.
Katzen Eye Group is fortunate to have on staff a fellowship-trained Pediatric specialist, Dr. Lisa Abrams. If your child is experiencing vision problems or would like to schedule a regular eye exam, please contact us today.
