At what age can I take my child to get their eyes tested?

School going age is a good time to do this, unless there is something obviously wrong with the child’s eyes like a squint. Here are some signs that your child might have some vision problems:
If they complain of not being able to see the board from a particular distance, or if the teacher says they can’t seem to copy information from the board accurately.

  • If they constantly cover one eye in order to see clearly, if you notice this happening, get them tested as soon as possible (see discussion below).
  • If they seem to have trouble reading (If they’re reading below their age level), skipping words, lines etc. could be a sign of eye muscle weakness that requires a few exercises.
  • If they fail an eye screening test at school.
