It’s best to treat vision issues early, which is why at every check-up, your child’s pediatrician checks the eyes for any condition that could lead to vision problems. By age three, children should have their vision tested. No matter what age child you have, be sure to talk to your pediatrician if you have any concerns about your child’s eyes or vision.
