Vision Test Should be the First Exam Students take this Year

To give your child a head start to a successful school year, educate yourself on the relationship of healthy eyesight and classroom performance.

Since 80% of a child’s learning is visual, a child’s ability to clearly see the blackboard and words on the page is critical. Many children do not know they have a problem because they think how they see is how everyone else sees. Unfortunately, some students who are labeled as having a learning disability or behavioral problems may simply have a vision impairment.

One in four school-age children have some form of vision problem. A child should not need to start failing in school before we realize there is a problem. Put “eye examination” on your back to school list.
