Eye exams are important at every stage of life, beginning at approximately 6 months of age. The recommended schedule for eye exams is 6 months, 2-3 years, before kindergarten and then once per year thereafter. VSP recommends scheduling your child’s eye exam near the start of the school year to help them start the school year right. Only approximately 14% of children receive comprehensive eye exams before beginning Kindergarten or First Grade even though 1 in 4 children suffer from some sort of vision problem. Studies show that approximately 60% of “problem learners” have undetected vision problems. Adults suffer from eye problems, too. Nearly 90% of those who use the computer for 3 hours per day have vision problems related to computer eye strain. Of course, age increases the risk of vision problems like cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and more.
