The American Optometric Association recommends that optometrists screen children for vision problems early in life.
In fact, it says that eye exams should begin around age 3 and continue throughout childhood.
If you notice signs of poor vision in your child, talk to your doctor or schedule a consultation with us to get her/his vision checked as soon as possible.
You can also find information about how to recognize some common vision issues HERE.
Children who don’t see well tend to have lower performance on standardized tests like the SAT and ACT.
A study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology found that students with low reading skills had poorer vision than those with better vision.
So, if you want one way to help influence your children doing better in school, please make sure their vision is checked regularly.
