With students bringing phones, laptops and tablets to school, their eyes are being subjected even more to the screens that can potentially damage them. It’s crucial to understand how these vision problems can inhibit your child’s learning process.
Eye exams performed at school by a nurse are not quite as effective at diagnosing vision problems that aren’t prominent yet. This can lead to children being misdiagnosed for other issues such as ADHD, when it is often a vision problem. One in four children has an undetected vision problem, so visiting an optometrist as part of your back-to-school routine is crucial. Make an appointment with Dr. Lucy today and get your children the ability to work their best this school year.
