Caring for young eyes is one of our passions at Airdrie Family Eye Doctors. We like to see babies for their first eye exam around six to nine months of age. We need to check babies for high prescriptions, unequal prescriptions, eye alignment concerns and eye conditions. Children should have an annual eye exam. Our aim is for children to come in and love having their eyes tested. We only test to our patient's comfort and do everything we can to ensure their comfort during their exam.

Do not forget the importance of sun protection for young eyes. Children have very clear corneas and lenses and this puts them at a higher risk to UV damage. At Airdrie Family Eye Doctors, we only sell kids glasses that are genuinely 100% UV protective, and ones that we would want our own children wearing.
