Children’s Vision

Maximize Your Child’s Potential

Super Brothers 1280X853Current research suggests that approximately 1 in 6 children has a vision problem significant enough to interfere with school performance. Children born with poor vision do not know what “normal vision” is like. They often think that everybody sees the same way they do. Therefore, do not wait for your child to tell you they have a vision problem.

Over 80% of learning involves vision. The earlier you have your child’s eyes checked, the sooner you may discover a vision problem that might be interfering with their development.

Recommended frequency for children’s eye examinations:

Six months of age, before they begin school and every 12 months (depending on advice of the Optometrist)
