What's the best time for a child to have his or her first eye exam?

I know children should have an eye exam as early as possible so that we will know whether they have suffered eye problems and then treat them in a early time. Can anyone tell me when should they have their first eye exam?

    The AOA suggests that children had better have their first eye exam at 6 months because children's visual system develop rapidly at this age and they may suffer many eye disorders at birth and in a baby's first few months of life. If they get their first eye exam at this age, their vision can be corrected most effectively.

    Babies should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age to assess whether their eyes are developing normally. Children then should have additional eye tests at age 3-year-old to ensure proper eyesight and find the early sign of vision problem such as lazy eyes.
