Childhood is a very important time for vision development and often time’s vision problems can go undetected. Leaving vision problems undetected can cause poor school performance, problems with coordination, and other performance issues in children.
Use this checklist of common eye problem symptoms to determine if your child may have a vision problem and correct it before it’s too late!
- Does your child experience headaches when they read or write?
- Does your child find it hard to see the board in class?
- Does your child hold their book close when reading?
- Does your child experience itching, burning or watery eyes?
- Does your child get tired when reading?
- Does your child tilt their head when reading?
- Does your child avoid reading all together?
Your child’s vision is continually developing and should be checked on a regular basis. It’s better to catch problems earlier rather than later!
