(WTNH)–It’s never too early to get your child’s eyesight checked out. Your baby gets a look-see when it is born in the hospital, but at about two months of age, it’s a good idea to get your pediatrician to give the child a vision screening to make sure there are no issues that have developed.
Dr. Tara Cronin, a pediatric ophthalmologist with The Eye Care Group, says the sooner young patients are seen, the better the outcome will be if something isn’t right.
“The sooner we treat, the better off they are, and some kids do great and phenomenal even though they started off with very poor vision,” Cronin said. “If we can get to those kids early, then we can have great results.”
