There is still plenty of summer vacation left, but now is a great time to schedule your child’s back-to-school eye exam. According to the American Optometric Association, more than 80% of a child’s learning is visual. That means that if your son or daughter is having trouble seeing, they will have a more difficult time with their education. Ensure that they’re prepared for the school year ahead, and call The Catonsville Eye Group today!
An adult can quickly identify symptomatic problems with their vision, but a child cannot. Your son or daughter might not even realize that they have a vision issue until the problem becomes much worse. During a comprehensive eye exam, an optometrist will evaluate your child’s eyes, and determine the best method to correct any problems.
The early years of your child’s education lay the foundation for their entire future. If your son or daughter cannot see the board, they won’t be able to complete their assignments with ease or enjoyment. From reading and writing to learning basic electronic skills, a child’s education depends on their ability to see well. By scheduling an eye exam during the middle of the summer, parents will have enough time to purchase glasses and acclimate their child to their new visual lifestyle.
If your child plays an after-school sport, it’s important that they’re able to see well. No matter their preferred sport, it’s important that your child exhibits good hand-eye coordination and depth perception abilities. If your child is having vision trouble, they could become seriously injured during practice or games. An eye doctor can recommend eye safety tips and prescription sports goggles, if necessary.
