Kid's Eye Exams

We make pediatric eye care a priority.

At Henry Ford OptimEyes, our focus is on eye care from day one. Jehann Dagher, O.D., F.A.A.O. heads our Pediatric Eye Care team and specializes in the non-surgical management of amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (eye turns). She is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of non-strabismic binocular vision anomalies and learning-related vision problems.
Pediatric eye care should begin as early as 6 months of age and continue into adulthood.

Book an Eye Exam

We recommend the following schedule of examinations for children:Kids Eye Exam

6 Months - 2 Years

The American Optometric Association recommends that a child’s fi rest eye exam be conducted at the age of six months to a year. Excessive refractive error, inadequate eye movements, and ocular health can limit a child’s ability to develop normal vision. A complete vision and health exam will catch these problems early on, when treatment is most effective..

Toddlers (2 - 4)

The next eye exam in a child’s life should be conducted around three years of age. At this time, the child is able to verbalize what they are seeing, even if they haven’t learned the alphabet yet. This exam will assure the child is ready for the high visual demands that come with the first year of school.

Children in School

As a child grows, their eye grows as well. The visual tasks required of a child increase with each grade. Because of this, it is important for children to have a comprehensive eye exam every year to assure they are ready to meet the demands of the next grade.
