Well, the summer's end is near. Moms and dads all over are going shopping for bags and books, making sure their children have everything they need for the academic year. And actually, this is a great time to take your child for an eye exam, if you haven't already done so.

A huge percentage of learning is achieved with the use of a child's eyes. But even with this strong connection between vision and learning, many parents seem to be unaware of this, and as a result, don't get their child's eyes examined regularly. As your child's vision may change frequently, regular eye care is crucial to good school results and self esteem.

Kids, it's worth noting, have a truly impressive ability to function even with an issue with their vision and they might not talk about any trouble, because they don't actually realize they are having a problem seeing. As children go through school, it becomes increasingly important to monitor their vision. Some warning symptoms include confusing numbers or letters, frequently watering eyes, eye rubbing, extra close reading distance, head tilting, and avoiding detailed work.

Struggling to meet the visual demands of schoolwork may noticeably affect their academic performance. New educational technology, such as the use of interactive whiteboards, can also potentially exaggerate less obvious vision problems. Without adequate vision, kids can be at a disadvantage not just in the classroom, but also mentally, physically and emotionally.

If you're the parent of a child who wears glasses already, the start of the school year is a good time to consider buying some newer frames. Even though your child might be able to see clearly with his or her current pair of glasses, they may not fit correctly or perhaps the optical centers of the lenses no longer align with the child's eyes due to normal growth. If kids don't feel good in their glasses, they probably won't wear them much.

So be sure to make an appointment to see us as part of your back-to-school routine. We'll do all we can to help all the kids we treat commence the year afresh with great vision.
