When was the last time your children had an eye exam? Although I mentioned an eye exam as being one of our action items before heading back to school even with that, my older daughter struggled with vision problems before finally getting a glasses. We always knew there was a chance our kids will wear glasses. Both my husband and I wear glasses, getting checked out by their pediatrician was always part of our back to school routine. Although she was fine during her routine checkup, she later complained that she has to squint to see the board while at school, so a few years ago we took her to see a pediatric ophthalmologist, who ended up recommended that we get her glasses so she doesn’t have to strain her eyes while in class. Hence, today’s essential eye care tips for kids.
According to American Public Health Association, about 5% to 10% of preschoolers and 25% of school-aged children have eye problems. Which is why early intervention is important to avoid permanent vision loss. Children are visual learners, yet some parents don’t feel it’s important to get an eye exam as part of their child’s routine checkup.
