Back-to-School Eye Exams... Why they're so important !
As the new school year approaches, parents should remember that a child's vision should be a top concern. From ages 6 to 18 a child's vision can change frequently or unexpectedly which can lead to behavior and attention issues in the classroom.
The American Optometric Association reminds us to keep these four eye health and safety tips in mind:
"One in four children has an undiagnosed vision problem because changes in their eyesight go unrecognized by both the child and their parents or guardian," said Andrea Thau, O.D., president of the AOA. "Making a comprehensive eye examination a priority this year is one of the single most important investments you can make in your child's education and overall health. While schools typically offer basic vision screenings, these often create a false sense of security by missing significant problems. A comprehensive eye exam is the only way to properly diagnose and treat vision and eye health issues."
