There are various factors that determine when and how frequently you might need an eye exam. Some of these include your overall health, your age, and the risk of developing any vision problems.

Younger children under the age of 3

For children under the age of 3, eye check-up is initially done by a pediatrician. They might check for common eye problems like misaligned eyes or crossed eyes. If there are any signs or symptoms, a more comprehensive eye examination is recommended once they are 4 or 5 years old.
