A child’s first eye exam should be when they turn 6 months old, then at age three, and again right before they enter first grade.
The following warning signs may indicate an eye problem:
Avoiding reading, writing or drawing
Closing one eye when they go out in bright sunlight
Closing one eye when they watch TV or read
Complaining about double or blurred vision
Excessively rubbing their eyes
Excessively watery eyes
Having unexplained headaches
Holding books or objects unusually close to their face or sitting very close to the TV
Poor hand-eye coordination and clumsiness
4 keys for choosing prescription glasses for kids:
They must feel comfortable
The material must be tough, but light, better if it is INDESTRUCTIBLE
The frame must fit to the child’s face
The glasses need to be universal for the many different needs and activities children have throughout the day (options to add a clip for blue light protection or sunglasses are available)
At Bauer Eyecare we can do an eye exam with NO AIR PUFF and NO DILATION options, we partner with brands such as Oakley and Nano Vista.
Nano Vista glasses are made of a unique and patented material called Siliflex; Its particular composition makes them virtually indestructible, and sizes are available for babies as well as teenagers.
