The Manitoba association of Optometrists recommends that babies have their first eye exam between six and nine months of age. This way they can ensure that their eyes are developing properly. Making sure that eye and muscle movements are aligned, and the eyes are focusing together.
Serious eye conditions can be identified during the first eye exam. If left uncorrected, these conditions can result in serious vision problems. With early detection and treatment, many vision problems are reversible and in some cases preventable.
