Eye health

Optical illusion

Most people are under the assumption that their children have perfect vision, but look again. About 25 percent of elementary students have vision problems serious enough to impede learning.

This is reported by the American Public Health Association, and many of these children are not diagnosed during a school eye screening, so schedule an annual check-up with a Doctor of Optometry.

Watch out for these warning signs: squinting, poor posture while reading or writing, sitting too close to the television, rubbing eyes frequently, skipping lines while reading, using a finger as a place mark, regularly closing or covering one eye, and frequent headaches.
