A – We agree with the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommendation that children have a complete eye exam at 6 months of age. If a problem is noticed or if the baby is at high risk for vision problems (low birth weight, difficult delivery or strong family history of eye problems) you may want them seen sooner.
