Does your child struggle with reading or schoolwork?

He or she may benefit from a comprehensive eye exam.

Back to School Eye ExamsThe majority of vision problems that interfere with reading and learning are easily treatable. Even if your child participated in a vision screening at their school or pediatrician’s office, he or she may benefit from a comprehensive eye exam with an optometrist, who can detect eye damage or conditions that are not typically found during vision screenings alone.

The American Optometric Association advocates that children should receive a comprehensive eye exam before entering the first grade and annually thereafter. If you notice the following symptoms before your child starts first grade or between annual appointments, schedule an appointment so your child does not fall behind. Remember, most problems are easily treatable when detected early.

Common symptoms of vision or eye health problems that can interfere with reading and learning include:

  • Squinting
  • Headaches
  • Focusing with one eye
  • Eye rubbing
  • Sitting too close to the television
  • Losing place while reading
  • Skips or rereads lines while reading
  • Number and letter reversals, such as “b” and “d”
  • Homework takes much longer than it should
  • Child reports having trouble seeing the board at school
