Children & Teenager Eye Care

Children & Teenager Eye Care

Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive eye care for children and teenagers. Studies show that 80% of all learning is visual, thus a comprehensive eye examination is important to ensure that they perform at their best academically, socially, and athletically. If your child is having difficulty in school specifically with reading this could be a sign of visually related ocular issues. If you notice your child squinting to see the computer or tv, or complaining of headaches, it may a time to bring him or her in for an eye exam at our eye care centers in Montrose, CA & Glendale. Los Angeles.

Child & Teenager Exam Frequency

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Ophthalmologists (AAO) recommend that all children have an eye exam during the newborn stage and again at all routine well-child exams.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screenings to detect lazy eye (amblyopia), misaligned eyes (strabismus), and defects in visual acuity in children between the ages of 3 and 5 years.

The AAP recommends that vision screenings start around age 3 and occur each year at ages 4, 5, and 6. After that, screening should occur at ages 8, 10, 12, 15, and 18.
