Glasses can help a child develop normal vision as she grows. Therefore, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that all babies have their eyes examined between the age of 6 months and 1 year. In some cases, a child may need her first pair of glasses when she is only a few months old. Parents shouldn't worry, though, as even infants and toddlers will wear eyeglasses without much trouble once they realize how much better they can see.
