When should kids have comprehensive eye exams?

Did you know that kids should have their first eye exam by the time they're a year old? It's true, and BCEC 4 Kids is proud to offer Infant eye health exams for kids starting at 6 months of age.


Kids should have their eyes examined by age 1, again by age 3, before starting Kindergarten and then every year to two years after that. Is it time to schedule your child's eye health exam?
