In just few weeks, summer will end and the back-to-school season will begin. Apart from preparing your child’s school supplies and clothes, Park Slope Eye would also like to remind you to schedule a comprehensive eye exam for them.

Importance of Back-to-School Eye Exams

Your pediatric eye doctor discusses important reasons children should have their eyes checked before school resumes.

Many Eye Conditions Develop During Childhood

Children’s young and developing eyes are vulnerable to developing various eye conditions. Some of these problems are asymptomatic in the early stage, making prompt detection a challenge. Through a comprehensive eye exam, we’ll be able to identify sight-threatening conditions and provide prompt, effective treatment.

Children Don’t Always Realize They Have a Vision Problem

Children often have a hard time recognizing visual irregularities, with studies showing that one out of four kids may have undetected vision problems. Through a professional eye exam, we use our experience, knowledge and advanced equipment to check for signs of underlying vision problems. In the meantime, you should also be on the look-out for signs that your child has a vision problem. Sitting too close to the TV, for example, may indicate nearsightedness. We may prescribe corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses to improve their visual acuity.

Better Academic Performance and Quality of Life

Your children’s eyesight plays a central role in their learning and development. By having routine back-to-school eye exams, we can monitor any changes in their visual capacity over time and provide necessary interventions to keep their eyes in great condition. This way, they won’t have problems reading lessons from the board, writing their notes or even playing with other kids.
