The visual demands of a child are not the same as those of adult. Dr. Sugarman received pediatric training at one of the nation’s top pediatric vision practices, the Draisin Vision Group in West Ashley, South Carolina. He would tell you that pediatric exams are his favorite part of vision care!
The American Optometry Association recommends children receive eye exams at age 1, 3, and 5. It is crucially important that children receive exams before starting school. You might be surprised how thoroughly a child’s eyes can be examined! Many vision problems can be corrected much more easily and effectively if treated at a young age.
