Depends on variables: This age group is hard to evaluate in a simple setting and the best evaluations can be done by those with the tools and equipment to do so. Ophthalmologists, pediatric ophthalmologists, some and optometrists are likely to get the most accurate results. We seldom try chart exams before 4 as kids rarely understand the process. ...Read more
