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.
That's why a comprehensive eye examination is so important for children. Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to correct vision problems, so your child can learn to see clearly.
Eighty percent of all learning is performed through vision. Make sure your child has the best possible tools to learn successfully.
WHEN SHOULD CHILDREN BE EXAMINED?
The American Optometric Association recommends that pediatric patients receive eye exams at 6-12 months of age, 3 years of age, before entering first grade, and every year thereafter or as recommended by your eye doctor.
