Children’s eye exams are an important part of growing up. The exam will ensure that each child has normal, healthy vision and can identify early vision issues that could affect daily life and school work. Since 30% of learning disorders are caused by vision problems, it’s important that your child has regular eye exams once a year.
Children cannot always tell you what’s wrong. For that reason, it’s important to monitor their eye health. Look for eyes that appear to be crossed, eyelids that are swollen or red-rimmed, and watery, red eyes. If your child is rubbing their eyes a lot, closing or covering one eye, having trouble reading, holding objects up close to their eyes, complaining of blurry vision or burning eyes, complaining of nausea or dizziness, or having coordination issues you should consider bringing them in for an eye exam.
