    My dd had her eyes tested and got glasses before she turned 12 months.

    Yes as per PP eyes can be tested from before corrected birth date for prems in NICU through paediatric ophthalmologist, so any age would be the answer, I believe.

    My dd was referred to a Paediatric ophthalmologist at 2 months old. .. Finally saw them at 8 months old. Nice long waiting list at the hospital.
