Our Children’s Education is Important Don’t Let It Become A Blur.
Children with uncorrected vision conditions or eye health problems face many barriers in life, academically, socially and athletically. High-quality eye care can break down these barriers and help enable your children to reach their highest potential.
Vision doesn’t just happen. A child’s brain learns how to use eyes to see, just like it learns how to use legs to walk or a mouth to form words. The longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the more a child’s brain learns to accommodate the vision problem. (“Children’s Vision,” 2017, American Optometric Association).
That is why a comprehensive eye examination is so important for children. McMillin eyecare recommends children get their eyes checked starting at age 4. For school children, eye exams are recommended before first grade, then every two years after that.
Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to correct vision problems so your child can learn to see clearly. Make sure your child has the best possible tools to learn successfully.
It’s an investment we can’t afford not to make.
