Vision plays a vital role in the reading and learning process. Children must have crisp, sharp eyesight in order to see the print clearly in books and on classroom boards. Although most schools perform a standard vision screening, those tests will generally only check for sharpness of your childís vision at a distance. Childrenís vision involves so much more. They can suffer from undetected vision problems that can make learning and socializing difficult.

If your childís vision doesnít meet the grade, his or her performance in school may not be a true indicator of their academic or athletic capabilities.

Give your child the right start with an eye exam from one of the eye care professionals at Sansbury Eye Center. Our eye doctors and professional staff have the specialized training necessary to provide comprehensive eye care for your entire family.

Indicators of Vision Problems in Children
  • Squinting, closing or covering one eye
  • Holding a book close to the face
  • Losing his/her place while reading
  • Headache, nausea or dizziness
  • Excessive clumsiness
  • Tilting the head to one side
  • Frequent daydreaming
  • Using a finger as a place marker while reading
  • Performing below potential
  • Rubbing eyes repeatedly

Since vision changes can occur without your child noticing them, your child should visit the eye doctor at least every two years, or more frequently if specific problems or risk factors exist. If needed the doctor can prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Keep in mind, a school screening, while helpful, is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye examination. Schedule your childís eye examination to make the most of a good education.

Starting at only $99, our Kid's Packages include frame and single vision, polycarbonate lenses. See store for details.
