Have you been wondering when the appropriate time is to take your child in for their first eye exam? I asked a pediatric optometrist who recommends the first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age. The rational is that if a child is going to develop a concerning condition, it often develops within the first two years and frequently involves the eyes in a myriad of ways.
Great health begins with prevention and eye health is often overlooked. Give us a call at 503-974-9283 if you have any questions regarding this post or other well child exams. Flow Natural Health Care offers full pediatric services.
