Children Don't Know When They Have A Vision Problem. When Was Your Child's Last Eye Exam? Schedule One Today with a Pediatric Eye Doctor at Beraja Medical Institute.
Children can develop many of the same eye problems that are seen in adults, but they often require specialized care. Pediatric eye care includes everything from routine vision screenings to caring for more serious conditions, such as retinopathy of prematurity or childhood cataract or glaucoma.
Children must have at least one vision screening within the 12 months before they begin kindergarten. Infants and toddlers may require an eye exam earlier based on birth history, family history of eye problems or medical problems that may be suspected to cause eye problems.
