Most learning is accomplished with children's eyes. Despite the overt link between sight and learning, many parents don't realize how profoundly vision problems affect education, and don't get their child's eyes examined regularly. As your child's vision may change frequently, regular eye exams are necessary for success at school.
Kids have a truly astounding ability to function despite having a vision problem. It is extra important to look out for the signs of vision problems as your child progresses through school.
Struggling to meet the visual demands of schoolwork can significantly impact his/her progress. Technology that's recently been integrated into the classroom, such as the use of interactive whiteboards, can also potentially heighten less obvious vision problems. Without adequate vision, students may suffer not only in the classroom, but also mentally, physically and emotionally.
If your child already has glasses, the start of the school year is a perfect time to see if their current frames are right for them. Even though your child might be able to see wearing his or her older glasses, they might fit poorly or perhaps the lenses are not optimally positioned anymore due to normal growth. If you want the child to wear his glasses, he better like them!
