Pediatric eye screening guidelines
Pediatricians screen newborns for any physical, genetic or developmental abnormalities that may be vision related. In cases of prematurity, a pediatric ophthalmologist or retina specialist may be consulted. Abnormal findings are reported to a pediatric ophthalmologist who may evaluate the child.
Six months to five years
A pediatrician will check a child’s eyes for health, visual development and alignment at each of your child's wellness check-ups. Abnormal or inconsistent findings may be reported to a pediatric ophthalmologist who may evaluate the child
Vision in each eye should be checked separately every year. These screenings may be performed by a pediatrician or licensed school personnel. If a problem is found during routine eye screenings, your child's doctor or school may have your child see a pediatric ophthalmologist or other eye care professional.
Pediatricians and school personnel may perform vision screenings into adolescence. As any abnormal symptoms appear, children should be referred appropriately to an eye care specialist to manage symptoms and ensure a child’s visual potential is fully realized
At any given time that symptoms or risk factors appear, a child may be more frequently evaluated by a professional capable of managing the symptoms or risk factors for developing eye disease.
