Good vision is important for a child’s educational, physical and social development.
With many children suffering from undetected vision problems, it’s important to be aware of the possible signs of a vision problem to give every child the best chance of reaching their full potential. When it comes to formative and intellectual development, maintaining good children’s eye health is essential.
While other senses play an important role too, for children, the eyes are conducive to socialising, reading emotions, and language development.
Having your children’s eyes tested before they begin school may prevent developmental difficulties resulting from impaired vision. By having their eyes tested by an optometrist regularly in the absence of symptoms, you can catch difficulties at their earliest stages.
