A Strong School Year Starts With Good Vision

Approximately 80% of school-based learning is achieved visually. But even with this strong correlation between sight and learning, a lot of parents seem to be unaware of this, and don't include eye exams as part of their child's back to school medical check-up. It's important to know that because vision in kids changes, regular eye care is central to doing well in at school.

Children have a truly impressive ability to work with a vision problem. It is especially important to monitor the indicators of vision problems as your child progresses through school. Telltale signs may include trouble seeing numbers or letters, frequently watering eyes, eye rubbing, extra close reading distance, avoiding small print, and head tilting.

Not having the ability to meet the visual requirements at school may noticeably affect their academic performance. New technology brought into the classroom, such as interactive whiteboards, can even exacerbate previously hidden vision problems. Without adequate vision, students may suffer not only at school, but also mentally, physically and emotionally.

If you're the parent of a glasses-wearing child, the start of the school year is a perfect time to see if their current frames are suitable and comfortable. If you want the student to wear his glasses, he better feel good about them!

So don't forget to visit us when you're getting your children ready for their year. We want to help your child begin the year afresh with vision that's in excellent condition.
