Why is vision care crucial to a child’s learning process? More than 80% of a child’s learning is visual. Reading, writing, seeing the board or looking at a computer or tablet screen may be hard for your child if he or she is experiencing vision problems. Sometimes, a child may not know what it’s like to have “normal” vision, and therefore may not readily communicate that he or she is experiencing difficulty.
My child can see the whiteboard – is he or she okay without an eye exam? Not necessarily – children may still experience issues with up-close tasks like reading, printing, or visually-based learning games. It is always important to have your child’s vision tested yearly, and our back to school promotion is the perfect opportunity to do it. My child is experiencing difficulties learning new tasks. Could this be vision-related? It’s possible. Because so much of a child’s early learning is visual, he or she could be unable to read and comprehend concepts, may be experiencing visual strain, and could be falling behind. A comprehensive eye exam can help diagnose or rule out any vision problems related to a child’s learning.
What symptoms may indicate poor eyesight in a child?
Symptoms can range from:
- Headaches and eye strains
- Squinting or closing one eye while reading
- Poor concentration
- Losing one’s place when reading
- Poor reading
- Poor handwriting
- Omitting short words or malforming letters when writing
- Decreased energy
