What is a Paediatric Optometrist and how do they help babies and children?

SAOA Optometrists, through their clinical education, training and experience have the means to provide effective primary eye and vision services to children. Vision care and regular eye examinations are essential for children, the earlier the better. According to the South African Optometric Association (SAOA) early detection of visual problems followed by early intervention in vision care is crucial to achieve normal vision in infants and young children with visual anomalies.


Paediatric comprehensive eye examination is advised as follows:
• 6 months
• 3 years
• 5-6 years , just before they enter the first grade
