Send Your Child To School With Good Vision

clipart 025


A huge percentage of school-based learning is achieved with children's eyes. Yet interestingly, in spite of this well-known correlation between sight and learning, a lot of people don't realize how profoundly vision problems affect education, and don't get their child's eyes examined regularly. As your child's vision may change frequently, regular eye exams are necessary for success at school.

It is even more important to keep an eye out for the indicators of vision problems as your child progresses through school.

Inadequate eyesight and increasing visual demands like homework and small print in textbooks can affect his or her academic growth. Recently developed educational technology, like interactive whiteboards, can also potentially provoke less obvious vision problems. Without adequate vision, kids can be at a disadvantage not just in the classroom, but also mentally, physically and emotionally.

If you're the parent of a child who wears glasses already, the start of the school year is a great time to consider buying a new pair of frames. Even though your child might be able to see clearly wearing his or her current pair of glasses, they may fit poorly or perhaps the lenses are not optimally positioned anymore due to normal growth. The more a child likes and feels comfortable in his or her glasses, the more they'll be worn!

Make sure you make time to come see us as part of your back-to-school routine. We want to help our young patients commence the academic year with vision that's in excellent condition.

Reduced Staff and Office Hours

Our office will remain open for patients who are experiencing any eye-related issues, including emergency visits, non-routine exams to replace lost or broken glasses and refilling of contact lens prescriptions. We will be working reduced hours, with a skeleton staff. Please call before coming into the office, as we will not be seeing any walk-ins. We are also offering telehealth for patients experiencing any eye-related infections for those who are unable to or are not comfortable coming into the office.

We appreciate your understanding in working to keep our staff and patients safe. Please take good care of yourself and stay healthy! We will get through this!
