It’s hard to believe we are already half way through August and that the upcoming school year is here! As the Back-to-School sales and specials kick off, Zyloware has you covered to take your eyewear game to the next level.
An eye exam may be the last thing on your mind in the rush to get your children ready to go back to school… but no amount of new clothes, binders, backpacks or pencils will help your child succeed in school if they have an undetected problem with their vision.
Why Back-To-School Eye Exams Matter
Did you know that one out of four children has vision problems? And yet only 50 percent of parents with children under the age of 12 have taken their children to an eye care professional.
Many children struggle needlessly with vision problems simply because they don’t know they have one. For a child in school, vision correction can make all the difference in their academic performance as well as their ability to play sports and interact with others. Eye exams ensure that children are seeing and feeling their best.
The Difference Between Eye Exams and Vision Screenings
You may be wondering why eye care professionals recommend a back-to-school eye exam when many children receive a vision screening at school. There are, however, important differences between a screening and a comprehensive eye exam. Children’s bodies are rapidly growing and changing, this means their eyes as well! Regular eye exams will ensure early detection and treatment of any problems!
Set Your Child Up For Success
80% of learning at school is visual. Make your child’s eyesight a priority this school year and make an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam. A screening tests only for visual acuity while comprehensive exams will test for visual acuity, chronic diseases, color vision and make sure the eyes are working together properly.
