I was not aware of this age restriction and enquired about this from a local optometrist. He informed me that there is no actual age restriction. On the Spec Savers website they mention testing children younger than 6 years. Asigmatism is a focus problem usually due to an irregularity of the cornea that does not having its usual smooth shape. It is very common indeed. You should take your daughter to an optometrist first and then only if necessary you may be referred to an ophthalmologist.
