Pediatric/Children’s Eye Exams are recommended yearly because children’s eyes can change quickly. Pediatricians begin screening for eye problems as soon as a child is born and refer to specialists when necessary. Here at Powers Eye Center, we see children ages 5 and older. If a child is suspected to have an eye turn or any other vision problem, an eye exam is highly recommended. Poor vision can be a significant impediment to a child's ability to learn and develop.
