One minute we are searching the aisles of the grocery store in search of sunscreen, beach towels or a new swimsuit. And the next, the aisles quickly transition to "Back-to-School" advertisements filled with school supplies, books, and locker decorations.
We get so caught up in the sunshine and before we know it - School is just around the corner! As we prep for the new school year, we tend to forget one major detail: THE IMPORTANCE OF EYE EXAMS.
An eye exam is essential for your child's vision, eye health and learning ability.
Today's Parent states, "According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO), 75 to 80 percent of all school learning is visual, so an eye exam to identify or rule out any problems will help give kids the best possible start."
It is important your little one has a kids eye check-up within at least one month into the new school year to ensure they have solid vision skills to make it a successful year.
