Eye Doctors in the Columbia Basin
Eye Health Matters at Every Age
The condition of our eyes changes year after year, which is why it is important
to have regular eye exams even if you have never had an issue with your
eyes. A visit to an eye doctor is important for your eye health and your
overall well-being. The condition of your eyes can help detect early signs
of diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

When to Start Getting Eye Exams
The American Optometric Association (AOA) advises children have their first
eye exam at 6 months old. If no issues are discovered, the next exam is
recommended at age 3, and then another right before the start of school
at age 5 or 6 years old. From then on, children should receive an eye
exam every two years.
Over 80% of learning happens visually. It is not always easy to tell if
your child has a vision disorder. Vision problems usually develop slowly.
A child may not realize their vision has changed so it will be up to you
to notice the signs of a vision problem and take the next steps. Some
indicators your child may have vision problems include poor school performance,
sitting too close to television or computer screens, frequent squinting,
and difficulty reading.
