August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month

For most of us our children have either already started school or are gearing up to start with in the next few weeks.   Typically when we think of preparing for the school year and upcoming cold season we automatically think physical.  And while that is important, children's eye health often gets overlooked.  Especially since it's something that is not a requirement to start school.    As parents, we all want our children to exceed in school and do the utmost best that they can, right?   One of the best things you can do is take your child for an annual eye exam.  You don't want your child to have to squint or not be able to see correctly and not say anything out of embarrassment.   I know we are all busy gearing up for the new school year, but I encourage you, take your children for their annual exam, and while your there - get yourself an eye exam and show by example!

According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), vision problems affect 1 in 4 school age children. Detection and preventative measures are the best defense. The Prevent Blindness America Association has declared the month of August to be Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month.
