Back to School…Already!
Back to School!
I think I speak for everyone when I say, that summer seemed way too short this year! I cannot believe that I am seeing kids on the school playground again. If you have a child that has recently headed back to school, an eye exam is a critical part of their success in the coming year!
Proper eyesight and adequate vision skills are critical for academic success and can make all the difference in athletic performance as well. Make sure your child has all the tools for success they need, including an annual comprehensive eye exam and appropriate eyewear and/or contact lenses.
Speaking of contact lenses, it is also an excellent time to consider contact lenses for your child. Contacts, when used appropriately, are a safe alternative for active kids. Get your busy kids fit into contact lenses for fall sports and other activities this year. Not sure if your child is ready? Dr. King or Dr. Hoff can help determine if contacts are a good option for your child.
Your child will likely have a basic vision screening at school in the coming months. I am so grateful to the dedicated staff who perform these screenings every year. Screenings are designed to detect severe vision problems and significant vision deficits in one or both eyes. If your child is identified as having a potential problem during their school screening they definitely need a comprehensive eye exam. If your child passes their school screening they definitely need a comprehensive eye exam! There are many important vision skills, not to mention eye health, that we need to assess to ensure your child is healthy and prepared to do their best this school year.
