When Should My Child First See the Eye Doctor?

According to eye doctors, your child should first see the eye doctor at the age of six months. A comprehensive eye exam is necessary from birth to age two if there are concerns about an eye problem. This initial exam is also crucial if your family has a history of eye problems.

Dry eye occurs when your eyes lack adequate moisture or lubrication because your eyes produce poor quality or inadequate tears. You may experience symptoms like a scratchy, burning, stinging sensation in the eyes, light sensitivity, eye redness, or stringy mucus around and in your eyes.
