'When my youngest was 6 years old, he failed the kindergarten vision screening. I was told then that he had 'really poor vision' in one of his eyes (Amblyopia). I was shocked to hear that. My advice is to bring your child to their first comprehensive eye exam at age 3 and then every year after that. We could have taken some corrective measures than at that young age that he certainly would have benefited from. It is a misconception that we only need an eye exam when we wear glasses. There are many underlying eye conditions that can only be ascertained at a comprehensive eye exam.'
