Common Eyesight Problems in Children and Treatment

Last Eye Exam Was How Long Ago?

When was your child’s last eye exam? ¬†Untreated vision problems can greatly affect a child’s academic performance, as 80% of learning is done through the eyes.

Doctors recommend a full optometric eye exam at least every two years to catch any developing issues quickly. School vision tests are not as thorough, so don’t rely solely¬†on them.

– Avoids visual tasks such as reading
– Performs visual tasks with reduced understanding and speed
– Holds books close to his face
