Optometrists recommend all children have a comprehensive eye exam before starting school and once annually as they progress through their school years. Eye exams are the best way to ensure good vision health and detect eye diseases. A child with 20/20 vision may still have an eye health problem. Parents and educators often over-rely on school vision screenings, which only test certain aspects of vision.
Children who see better, learn better. In the U.S., 1 in 4 students in grades K-6 have undiagnosed eye problems that impede learning. We’re proud to partner with OneSight – an independent nonprofit – to provide underserved students and communities access to vision care and glasses.
