Oh, say can you see?


Did you know that school vision screenings don’t always detect all eyesight problems? Vision tests can miss problems that may be intermittent or related to eye-tracking (how the child’s eyes follow words). Since eyesight can impact school performance—and one in four children has trouble seeing—it’s important to watch for the signs that your child might have a problem, including:
  • Eye rubbing, redness or tearing
  • Losing their place, skipping words, or using a guide finger to read
  • Squinting or straining
  • Sitting closely to the television
  • Trouble copying words from the board

If you suspect that your child has problems seeing, talk with your family medicine doctor or pediatrician, or schedule a vision exam with a Fairview optometrist.
