Vision & Learning

Good vision is vital for children to succeed in school. In fact, over 80% of what a child learns is processed through the eyes. “Good vision” is more than just seeing 20/20 on an eye chart, though. Eye focusing, eye coordination & eye tracking are just a few of the other skills necessary to be successful in school.


Vision screenings in school only check the sharpness of vision, or the ability to see letters on a chart at a distance and may miss up to 75% of children with vision problems. It’s so important for school-age children to have a comprehensive eye exam every year to catch and treat any other vision-related problems.

When should my child have their first eye exam?


When it comes to healthy vision, prevention is the most important factor. You may be surprised to learn that even infants can (and should) receive eye exams!


The American Optometric Association recommends children have their first eye exam between 6 months and 12 months of age. The second exam should be done between 3 & 5 years old or before starting school. Annual comprehensive exams should start before first grade.
