Why Early Eye Exams are Important

Children learn to see through experience, much like they learn to walk and talk. Amblyopia, otherwise known as “lazy eye”, is the most common cause of preventable blindness in children. Vision loss usually occurs in one eye, although it can in rarer forms affect both eyes. This type of “blindness” results from a failure to use both eyes together. Unfortunately, because there are often no obvious signs that a young child is favoring only one eye it commonly goes undetected until later in life. When caught early amblyopia “lazy eye” is treatable. Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and American Optometric Association encourage early eye exams. Parents are encouraged to have their infant’s first eye exam prior to age 2.
