Over the years of being parent, some things I have learned the hard way. My oldest son (who is 11 years older than the youngest) got is first pair of glasses and lost them almost immediately. Me being stubborn refused to buy him another pair, his dad also refused, it has been a downhill battle every since, because he couldn't see.
Think About Your Eyes is a national campaign that encourages people to get annual eye exams and promotes the benefits of eye Exams. This year for Eye Exam Awareness Month set your kids up for a healthy future, by getting them an eye exam. Even if you take your kids this year and they don't need glasses, it is still important for you to take them every year for an exam. I didn't need glasses until 6th grade but went yearly for an exam.
My 6-year-old started the 2015/2016 school year as a kindergartener last year. They went to Christmas break and she started in on first-grade work. She ended the school year as a kindergartener going into the second grade! To continue on this success path, I want to make sure that her eyes are as good as they were last school year. So we will be taking a visit to the Eye Doctor a couple of days before school starts. Making sure they get into the eye doctor before school starts, allows them to catch and correct any problems that may cause issue with learning.
Lots of parents are waiting on their child to say that they are having problems seeing, and reality is, you just can't wait for them to tell you.
She doesn't display any signs of needing glasses, but because her father and I both need glasses, I just want to be safe and take the precautionary measures to know for sure. The success of her future depends on it.
