Strong Vision Begins in Childhood
At the Eye Care Centre, we’re devoted to helping children see clearly! Your child’s development is dependent on their vision, so regular eye exams are as important for your child’s health as regular health exams.
As children’s bodies change and grow, so do their eyes. Sometimes, vision problems can develop quickly that weren’t present when they were younger.
Nearly 25% of children experience vision problems, but these can usually be easily diagnosed during a routine eye exam. At Eye Care Centre, we encourage parents to schedule regular eye exams for their children and the entire family. Early detection and treatment of vision concerns and eye health issues promote health and happiness in children.
Learning & Vision Go Together
A child’s vision impacts every part of their development. The ability to see clearly and with appropriate depth perception affects movement and coordination. Being able to focus clearly on objects and letters impacts the development of language and skills.
Eyesight can also affect a child’s ability to learn by impacting their reading, writing, attention span, and ability to concentrate in the classroom and at home. If visual skills and development are delayed, your child can become frustrated, develop behaviour problems, and may experience life-long disadvantages.
