Starkville optometrist Amy Crigler says there are three times children should get their eyes examined before they start school: once right before they start, once when they are 3 years old and once between the ages of six and 12 months.
Sarah Fratesi, another optometrist who shares Criglerâ€™s clinic, said the typical eye chart of letters was often insufficient for three-year-olds and infants who hadnâ€™t yet learned how to read. Instead, she said, she asked three-year-olds to identify simple pictures, and for toddlers, she showed them a character and asks them to point out when they see the character again.
