My Precious Baby’s First Eye Exam

An ophthalmologist will look to see if your child’s eyes are moving properly. Constant  movement without focusing or a wandering eye can be important to mention at the eye exam. Another condition called amblyopia will be looked for by the doctor. This is a lazy eye that can often go unnoticed by parents or caregivers. Sometimes a lazy eye is subtle, but if left untreated could lead to further vision problems.

A good rule of thumb is to pack your diaper bag with a solution for almost any situation. Keeping your baby happy and content is vital to a successful eye exam.  It does not have to be a stressful event, just prepare and the exam may even turn out to be fun!
