A pediatrician will typically be the first to notice a vision problem in your child during a wellness visit. Sometimes, these issues are caught during a school screening, while other times it can take years for parents to notice behaviors that indicate poor vision such as squinting. You should bring your child in for an eye exam by the time they’re five because the earlier a lazy eye or refractive error is caught, the better quality of life your child can have.
