Despite the fact that undetected and untreated vision problems can lead to serious academic, health and social problems, only 1 in 3 children receive an eye exam before entering school. Child Vision Awareness Month is designed to better educate and counsel the public on children’s vision problems and detection of eye diseases in infants and children, to increase the number of school-aged children who have an eye exam by an eye doctor, and to increase the number of children with learning disabilities who have a developmental vision exam to rule out vision problems.
Summer vacation time is a great time to take children in for eye exams. Schedule one today.
