Does Your Child Need an Eye Exam?

School vision screenings reveal only part of the story

Unfortunately, parents and educators often incorrectly assume that if a child passes a school screening, then there is no vision problem. However, many school vision screenings only test for distance visual acuity. A child who can see 20/20 can still have a vision problem. In reality, the vision skills needed for successful reading and learning are much more complex.

 

Your child should receive a complete eye examination at least once every year and more frequently if specific problems or risk factors exist.

 

Even if a child passes a vision screening, they should receive a comprehensive optometric examination if they are not achieving up to their potential or are minimally able to achieve, but use excessive time and effort to do so.

 

The earlier a vision problem is detected and treated, the more likely treatment will be successful. When needed, the doctor can prescribe treatment including eyeglasses or vision therapy to correct any vision problems..
