Children’s Eye Care In Humboldt County
The team at A to Z Eye Care strongly encourages you to get started with your child’s eye exams early. Early identification of a child’s vision problems can be crucial as children are often more responsive to treatment when they are diagnosed young. Whether your child is 6 months old or in elementary school, our staff will design the perfect visit in order to perform a complete eye examination. It is remarkable what vision concerns can be evaluated on infants and children with the specific tools and techniques available in our office.
At What Age Should Kids Have Their First Eye Exam
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), a child should have their first comprehensive eye exam at six months of age and our doctors and staff have experience working with infants and children. We do our best to provide a comfortable and fun visit for your child!
