What age?
How do they tell if your baby has bad eye sight?

They will start testing them at their regular doctor and refer them if they need to go.

I had my son's eyes checked when he started asking to go to the eye doctor. He told me he needed glasses. He was 4. I thought he just thought they were cool.... but then I noticed that he was always really close to the TV. I wasn't sure, so I took him in and his eyes were already pretty bad. The doc told me that they would get worse every time he grew.
