Eyes Exams for Children in Savannah

Does your child need an eye exam, and if so, when should they have one? Here’s everything parents should know about eye care for children.

SouthCoast Health provides info here on everything parents should know about eye care for children.

Eye care experts from the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommend that children receive their first screening at birth, and then again at six months to check that their eyes are developing normally. Thereafter, it’s a good idea to bring your child for an exam annually.

 “Eye exams are more than just a way to determine whether your child may need glasses,” says SouthCoast Health optometrist, Edward D. Sammons, O.D (pictured) in Savannah. “They’re also a form of ongoing, preventive care.”
