My son's pediatrician had said nothing about his first eye or dental visit. I have a condition with my eyes that is genetic. I mentioned it to his doc and she didn't really say anything about it. I was told that my eyes could have been fixed before I turned 2 but they didn't become a problem until I was about 10 and by then it was to late. I did a Google search and it said he should habe already had a comprehensive eye exam at his 6 month check up but he didnt. I actually asked them to check his eyes at 9 months and all I got was a "why should we check them now" after I already told them my problem. We are changing his pediatrician as soon as he turns 2 and has most of his vaccines done.
For the dental part, google said 1 year was a good time for the first dental visit. Again, his doc hasn't said anything about it. He is getting some molars and it's making his mouth bleed. Should we go ahead and make an appointment to get both checked?
