Student's Success Begins With Healthy Vision

With the new school year fast approaching, your kids will soon have classes, projects, and homework to complete every day. You’ve done a great job preparing them with everything they need to succeed—lunchboxes filled with healthy meals; lots of pens, pencils, and notebooks for assignments; and plenty of help with math homework. 

But consider that more than 80% of a child’s learning happens through vision, and it’s easy to understand how an undiagnosed vision problem could impact learning and performance, grades, self-esteem, and more. That’s why regular eye exams are so important for your child. Sometimes, undetected vision problems are mistaken for a learning disability, such as dyslexia or ADHD.
Below are some of the major warning signs that your child is suffering from vision problems.
•    Sitting too close to the TV or other electronic devices, or holding a book too close
•    Using their finger as a guide and/or frequently losing their place while reading
•    Closing one eye or tilting their head to see better
•    Frequent eye rubbing or sensitivity to light
•    Complaints of headaches or tired eyes
If your child complains of any of these issues, it’s time to make an appointment with your optometrist. Your child deserves the best when it comes to education, and success in the classroom begins with healthy vision!
