August Is Child Eye Health and Safety Month

In addition to shopping for school supplies, it’s time to schedule a comprehensive eye exam for the kids. How convenient that August is designated as Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. It’s better to get the eye exams out of the way before school starts!

By having the exam, your child’s eye doctor can help detect nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. As well as, lazy eye, crossed eyes, drooping of the eyelid and color blindness.

Keeping your child’s eyes safe is extremely important. Help prevent eye injuries by,

  • Having them wear protective eyewear for sports and during recreational activities.
  • Buying age-appropriate toys to avoid sharp or protruding parts possibly hitting their eye.

Let’s help the kids have the best school year by scheduling their exams and taking safety measures.
