August is Vision & Learning month! It is estimated that over 10,000,000 children in the USA have undetected vision problems. Parents often think that their child’s vision must be fine if they are able to pass a vision screening at school. However, there are 17 visual skills needed for reading, and seeing a vision chart clearly is only 1 of those skills. The only way to know if your child has issues beyond seeing 20/20 is to have a comprehensive vision evaluation done with a developmental optometrist. There are ways to help if issues are found. Make sure your child’s vision is working well before the school year starts. Schedule an evaluation today, 518-886-1710.
