Eye Care for Kids
Vision problems in children are uncommon. But when they do occur, they often go undetected. Young children may not realize or be able to communicate that their vision is impaired. Even older children may not notice if the vision in only one eye is affected.
About 80% of what children understand is learned through their vision. Undetected vision problems can interfere with their learning and success at school. For these reasons, annual eye exams are just as important for children as for adults.
So how often should children have eye examinations to make sure their eyes are healthy?
