In brief: Many things
Children are subject to many eye diseases just like adults are.
In addition, visual problems can cause a lasting effect in children whose visual systems are not yet fully developed. In general, it is recommended that a child receive an eye exam at 6 months, 3 years and then annually after age 6.
