Many children* don't know that they can't see well enough. And not every school performs vision screenings, so you may not know that your child needs glasses. Some children are misdiagnosed as having behavioral problems when they just need to wear glasses. It is a good idea to have an annual eye exam, even if you think you, or your children, see okay because there are many conditions of the eye that can only be detected with a thorough eye exam.
*Please note - children 5 years old and up can be scheduled for routine exams. Children under the age of 5 will be seen and evaluated, as needed, at the request of a parent or pediatrician for a specific condition.
