With advance technology, we can check for vision problems starting 6 months, but with patient's co-operation, eye testing is started at age 3yrs. From then onwards, it is recommended every year once minimum , unless child has issues. Hope that helps.
Your pediatrician should be screening for vision problems even before this. At kindergarten they need to be seen by an eye doctor sooner if squinting or failed vision screen
