Developmental Milestones & What To Look For
Professional Eye Exam vs. School Screening
The most common children’s vision problems such as lazy eye, eye coordination and farsightedness can be missed in screenings up to 80% of the time.
School vision screenings are a quick test of visual acuity and an important part of the cooperative healthcare effort, are are in no way a substitute for a professional eye exam by an Optometrist.
A comprehensive exam and profession interpretation is the only way to thoroughly test a child’s vision system as it pertains to the learning process.
A professional exam will include not only testing of vision, focusing and eye alignment, but also the efficiency of the vision system and eye health.
