Eye disorders are among the most common long-term health problems children face. Given how many children suffer from undetected vision problems, it’s important for parents to know the signs to give every child the best chance of reaching their full potential.
During the busy back-to-school season, carving out time for a comprehensive eye exam is particularly important for children because they are less likely to seek help for themselves, and poor vision in children can lead to adverse learning conditions or the misdiagnosis of other conditions.
Eye health is an indispensable component of overall health and wellbeing at any age, but good vision is vital for a child’s educational, physical and social development. Children experiencing vision problems may not realize they are having issues with their eyesight.
