Good vision is vital for physical and educational development in children. Many vision problems are treatable only during childhood. Eighty percent of all learning is performed through vision. Make sure your child has the best possible tools to learn successfully.
Children learn to see through experience. Early eye exams assure that your child’s vision is developing normally. Coordination, concentration, and balance are just a few of the visually integrated abilities that promote healthy physical development. The longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the more a child’s brain learns to accommodate the vision problem.
The ability to see clearly is only one of the visual skills necessary to succeed in school. A professional eye exam also detects problems with tracking, coordinated use of the eyes, and the ability to re-focus.
Regular eye exams increases the likelihood of your child’s chance to adapt to any vision changes or corrections if needed. In our visually demanding world, prevention can equal success.
