Quoting *L's Mommie*:" When do doctors check eyesight for the first time.?"
Quoting ×ø×K·ßear×ø×:" never. i mean they do basic tests like follow the finger or whatever but they dont refer you to goto ... [snip!] ... usually children dont get their eyes checked til school but i brought my son when he was 2 due to a concerned lazy eye"
Quoting XavierRose:" really? I've worked in a ton of pediatric offices, and we do yearly eye tests on kids as little as 2...once ... [snip!] ... lower than 20/40 and they get referred. And the lazy eye test isn't done everywhere, but a few offices I've worked in had it. "
Quoting ×ø×K·ßear×ø×:" come to think of it maybe they did one at 3 where he read letters.. but by then we had been going to a regular eye doctor that did much more to truly determine good or bad eye sight. "
Quoting *L's Mommie*:" I have noticed a lazy eye, and I was thinking they did a hearing test, what about eyesight,.... So I sat there snapping my fingers in front of his eyes he didn't blink,..."
Quoting XavierRose:" must be your area. I've worked in NY and AZ, and have done tests in both offices. We usually don't refer unless the parents have concerns"
Quoting *L's Mommie*:" Well it's lazy and cross sided, I am hoping he just grows out of it"
Quoting *L's Mommie*:" He is a week and one day"
