August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month – a nationwide effort to educate parents on the importance of healthy vision for their children.
Much of a child’s learning is visually based, yet kids often don’t have the perspective to even know they have vision problems, much less tell their parents.
In fact, did you know that many kids who are originally considered to have learning disabilities are later diagnosed with vision problems?
Nearly 25 percent of school-aged children have vision problems. Of children ages 3 to 5, close to one in 20 has a problem that could result in permanent vision loss if left untreated. The American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that 80 percent of preschoolers do not receive vision screenings.
