Does my toddler need to see an eye doctor?

When my son wants to learn more about his toys, he holds them really close to his face. Is that a sign that he has bad eyesight or even a serious vision problem, or do all kids do that?

The Bump Expert

Your pediatrician should do vision screening during each regular well visit -- just as he/she would check your toddler’s ears, heart, and the rest of his body. Additionally, the American Optometric Association recommends a comprehensive eye exam at six months, around age three, before entering school, and then every two years after that. So be sure to bring this up so your pediatrician and/or optometrist can incorporate your observations, in addition to the test results, into the diagnosis.

Our optometrist office does a program called InfantSee and any baby 6-12 months can get a free evaluation. This is to catch any potential problems early so they can be corrected.

If you think that your child has a problem, you need to go see a doctor immediately. It may not be an urgent matter, but you want it "fixed" as soon as possible. It's like following an opium treatment. You don't want to be late.

I hope that you understand that you could visit a dual diagnosis rehab center and get special advice from a doctor. That is the best solution. You shouldn't wait one second if you think that your child has a medical problem.
