Start having your child’s eyes examined when young by your eye doctor. Some visual challenges can be halted or slowed if caught early, and other more serious issues could be detected. Keep your child’s prescription up to date. Not enough is said about early eye testing. There is research that shows many learning disorders could be averted if eye care was taken seriously early on in life. Advanced instrumentation now available makes it even easier for the doctor to detect issues and know your child’s visual acuity at an early age. Consult with your eye doctor for your child’s individual needs.
Athletic frames, lenses and goggles should be worn for sports activities. Athletic styles have come a long way from the big bulky goggles to being streamlined and stronger.
Constant use of smart devices has increased the need for eyewear for children. Pay attention to eye strain as blue light affects all of us, as does staring at one distance for long periods of time. Gaming can cause strain as well. See your eye doctor and optician regularly for the latest in eyecare and eyewear solutions.
