Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month

Children's Health and Safety Month

Another school year is quickly approaching, and August is designated as Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month!  Along with shopping for school supplies and new clothes, it’s time to make the kids an appointment for an eye exam.

Your child’s eye doctor can help detect refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism as well as the following:

There are some specific warning signs that may indicate that your child has a vision problem. Some of these include:

  • Wandering or crossed eyes
  • A family history of childhood vision problems
  • Disinterest in reading or viewing distant objects
  • Squinting or turning the head in an unusual manner while watching television

There are about 42,000 sports-related eye injuries every year in America, and children suffer most of these injuries.  Remind them to always wear protective eyewear while participating in sports
