1 in 4 Children Has Difficulty Seeing Clearly in Class. Does Yours?

Schedule back-to-school eye examinations today to make sure the most important people in your life are set up for success!

The Importance of Blue Light Eyewear

Blue light is the light produced by backlit screens on phones, LED TVs, computers, and handheld game systems. In moderation, it’s perfectly harmless, but screen time has increased by 60% over the past year. Is your child complaining of frequent headaches, blurry vision, or trouble focusing? This may be a symptom of too much exposure to blue light!

Fortunately, there’s a simple solution. Your child’s eyeglasses can be fit with specially designed lenses that filter out blue light, enabling them to focus in the classroom, while doing homework, or anywhere else — safely and comfortably!

The Importance of Annual Eye Exams for Kids

We all know that the ability to see clearly can be a difference maker in when it comes to success in the classroom. But, did you know that 1 in 4 kids has an undiagnosed vision problem severe enough to affect their performance in school?

Children grow and develop quickly, and rapid changes in their quality of vision are not uncommon. It’s critical to bring your child for an annual eye exam, even if they don’t currently wear glasses or contacts! Plus, annual eye health checkups allow the doctor to look for signs of pediatric eye diseases and provide treatment and management as needed.

Vision Therapy and Your Children

Not every eye condition we find during an exam can be fixed by eyewear. Sometimes, children have trouble seeing clearly or focusing their eyes due to issues like amblyopia (“lazy eye”) or strabismus (“crossed eyes”).

When conditions like these cause your child to struggle in the classroom or on the sports field, vision therapy may be the answer. With specialized, dedicated treatment that you won’t find anywhere else in the region, we’re able to help anyone overcome visual processing issues and have an easier time in school and at home.

Make sure your children can go back to school equipped with clear, comfortable eyesight!
