Mt. Baker Vision Clinic When should my child have their first eye exam? Most professional eye organizations recommend a child have their first eye exam by five years old. However, if you suspect a problem with your child’s eyes, exams can be done at any age, including soon after birth. Should my children wear sunglasses? Experts say 50 percent of our lifetime exposure to UV rays may occur by age 18. Given that cumulative UV damage to eyes causes diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration later in life, make sure your kids’ eyes are protected from the sun with good quality glasses.
