The Importance of Back To School Exams
Did you know that, when left untreated, some childhood vision problems can be mistakenly diagnosed as a learning disorder, or can eventually cause permanent eye health and vision problems? Additionally, with how quickly children grow, their eyes can change drastically from year to year, requiring regular eye exams to be sure their eyewear helps them see clearly.
Routine Child Eye Exams
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at six months of age. Additional exams should be scheduled for three years of age and before they begin kindergarten or first grade. Parents should at least schedule a pediatric eye exam at least every two years if nothing else.
Designers for children’s eyewear create the frames and lenses with highly durable and shatter-resistant materials. Designer glasses that are both fashionable and functional are also available. It’s easy to get kids excited about glasses, especially when frames can be fun colors and a great way to reflect their unique personality!
