In brief: Depends on age
A baby or young child who seems to have a seeing problem should to see a pediatric ophthalmologist (eye doctor for children) to diagnose the problem. Sometimes, no problem is found.
Other times, glasses are needed. Less commonly, there is a more serious issue in the eyes. Older kids can see a general ophthalmologist and be checked for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, etc...

In brief: Why?
If they are having problems with visual acuity, they should be seen by a pediatric ophthalmologist.
If you mean perception, then they should be seen by a neurodevelopmental pediatrician.
