Babies learn to see over a period of time, much like they learn to walk and talk. They are not born with all the visual abilities they need in life. The ability to focus their eyes, move them accurately, and use them together as a team must be learned. Also, they need to learn how to use the visual information the eyes send to their brain in order to understand the world around them and interact with it appropriately.

Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. Eye and vision conditions in infants can cause developmental delays and are easier to correct if treatment begins early. That's why the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your infant's first eye exam around six months of age.
