Eye examinations to evaluate your child for possible amblyopia (lazy eye) are recommended as young as 6 months old. Screening checks at school and at the pediatrician’s office are not designed to evaluate the child’s complete visual system. A full examination is recommended before your child reaches school age.

 
There's more to vision than reading a 20/20 line on an eye chart. When oculomotor (eyes working together), or visual perception problems exist, learning may suffer. A visual system that does not coordinate well can often be remedied with an individualized course of vision therapy. Vision Therapy has been a long time part of Walton and Becker Eyecare, using both hands-on equipment and computer therapy programs.
