When should my baby have their first eye exam?

dr_bold_baby

Because a baby’s vision develops quickly during the first year of life, your child’s doctor will check your baby’s eyes at each well-child visit.

Risk-free children should have their first eye exam at six months of age, at age three, just before starting school, and every two years until age 18. Children who have risk factors for vision problems may need an eye exam earlier than six months of age and more frequently.
