Back to School Season

A child's eyes go through rapid changes, especially in the first six  years of life. But fewer than 15% of preschool children receive an eye  exam by a professional.

That's why the AOA (American Optometric Association) recommends children receive comprehensive eye exams on a regular schedule

*  At least one comprehensive eye exam between the ages of 3 and 5 to check for any conditions that could have long-term effects.
*  An annual, comprehensive eye exam starting before first grade.

Many parents aren't aware of these guidelines, so it's up to doctors of  optometry to spread the word about the importance of children's vision.

Much of a child's learning is visual. How well can your child see? If you don't know, it's time for a comprehensive eye exam.

Blurry vision is not the only reason to have an eye exam. Your child  could have difficulty using both eyes together, a critical reading  skill, and you might not know. Back to school means it's time to get a  comprehensive eye exam.

Undetected and untreated vision problems can elicit some of the very  same signs and symptoms commonly attributed to attention  deficit/hyperactivity disorder. A yearly comprehensive eye exam can help  make the right diagnosis for your child's needs.
