See Your Child Off To School with Good Vision

A huge percentage of learning is accomplished visually. Despite the obvious connection between vision and learning, a lot of people underestimate or are perhaps uninformed about vision problems, and don't get their child's eyes examined frequently enough. It's important to know that because vision in kids changes, regular eye care is necessary for success at school.

It is especially important to keep an eye out for the signs and symptoms of vision problems as your child progresses through school. Telltale signs may include reversing numbers or letters, watery eyes and frequent eye rubbing, extra close reading distance, avoiding small print, and head tilting.

Struggling to meet the visual requirements at school can noticeably affect their academic performance. New technology brought into the classroom, like interactive whiteboards, can also potentially exacerbate previously hidden vision issues. Without adequate vision, students may suffer not just at school, but also mentally, physically and emotionally.

If you're the parent of a child who wears glasses already, now is a good time to consider buying a new pair of frames. Even when a child can see wearing his or her old glasses, they might fit poorly or perhaps the optical centers of the lenses are not optimally positioned anymore due to normal growth. If you want a student to wear his glasses, he better feel good about them!

So visit us as part of your back-to-school routine. We'll help all the children we treat commence the year afresh with their vision in check.
