July is Vision and Learning Month

Learning is all about Vision: 80% of what a child learns in school is presented visually. Unfortunately, studies show that only 31% of children ages 6 – 16 have an annual eye examination, and 70% of children under 6 have never had an eye exam.

As a result 1 in 4 children will go back to school this year with an undiagnosed vision problem that could interfere with learning. Give your child the advantage that comes from good vision. Schedule a comprehensive eye examination in our office today.

But what about vision screenings performed by a school nurse or a pediatrician? Won’t they detect vision problems? Only partially. According to a study by the National Institutes of Health, vision-screening methods detected only 40 – 65% of children with vision problems.

Every child should have a comprehensive eye health examination. Even if a child has passed a vision screening, a comprehensive exam can reveal problems that would go undetected in a screening. And if a vision problem is detected, your family eye doctor can begin treatment immediately.

Better Vision . . . Better Grades.
