Start the School Year With Good Vision

As you might have guessed, a lot of progress at school is accomplished visually. Yet interestingly, in spite of this strong correlation between sight and learning, a lot of people don't seem to be aware of just how frequently occurring vision problems are, and don't include eye exams as part of their child's back to school health check-up. As your kid's vision may change frequently, regular eye and vision care is necessary for success at school.

Children have a truly astounding ability to work with a vision problem. As children go through school, it becomes even more important to monitor their eyesight.

Struggling to meet the visual requirements at school may affect his or her academic growth. Technology that's recently been integrated into the classroom, like interactive whiteboards, can sometimes provoke previously unknown vision issues. If a student doesn't have good enough vision, it isn't just their performance at school that is affected. It's mentally and emotionally challenging for them too.

If you're the parent of a glasses-wearing child, the start of the school year is a good opportunity to see if their current frames are right for them. Sometimes, although a child can see clearly wearing his or her current pair of glasses, they might fit poorly or perhaps the lenses no longer align with the child's eyes due to normal development. If kids don't feel good in their glasses, they probably won't wear them much.
