  • You can take him to an eye doctor and they can tell you without him uttering a word.
    They use lights/lenses to stimulate the cornea and based upon the reaction of it, they can tell if he can see clearly or not.

  • I have no idea. I have always wondered how they were able to test vision on such young children.

  • My 2 1/2 year old had eye surgery back in June (at 2 years old)....they test his vision every 3 months now using drops that dilate the eye and then using lights and prism type lenses...depending on the eye's reaction (or non reaction) they can tell if his vision is off....take him to the eye doctor *nod*

  • have the doc test his eye sight. We did this with my almost 4 year old and she is being referred to an eye specialist now.
