My daughter went to a pediatric opthamologist when she was about 8-9 months old. One of her pupils is larger than the other.
But, I think i really depends on your pediatricians opinion and the severity of the problem. Usually it requires a referral (at least in my experience). If you want just a general look-see to see if everything is okay... your pediatrician should have been doing that for you every visit thus far.

I went with my son as an infant, but he had a chance at being born legally blind due to a hereditary trait that luckily he did not get, however I waited to take my girls until they were 4 yrs old when they were reading and writing very good. I have one with reading glasses, and one with prescription glasses, I also have a child with a pupil that is larger than the other but it turned out to be benign.

My youngest got glasses at 19 months. We started noticing his eyes turning in at 17 months but it took 2 months to get an appointment. My oldest just turned 4 and he has not been yet so we need to get an appointment set up just in case because both my husband and I wear glasses and now the baby so it's time. Butter to be safe then sorry.
