August is Children’s Eye Safety/Health Month

School is right around the corner and it’s time for back-to-school readiness. Think seriously about adding “eye exam” to your list of things to do before school starts. Why start the school year with a visual disadvantage – difficulty seeing the board, squinting, coming home with headaches, maybe even getting poor grades?

So before the school year starts, call your eye doctor and schedule an appointment to ensure your child has healthy eyes and good vision. Even if there is no current need for glasses, you may discover an eye health issue or find out about potential vision issues before they interfere with learning.
