How will you know that your child needs eyeglasses?
Healthy eyes impact a child’s learning abilities. The first sign of problems with vision is when your child complains of headaches. Other signs that point to an appointment for an eye exam immediately are:
- constant rubbing of the eyes
- squinting while looking at something
- holding a book too close to the face while reading
- blinking most of the time
- holding the head at an angle while looking at objects
- reddish swollen eyes
- eyes that are not aligned properly
- frequently eye infections
A detailed eye exam can take up to an hour and will evaluate the following:
- Eye teaming skills
- Visual perceptual skills
- Eye muscle coordination
At College Street Optical Store, Toronto, we recommend an annual eye exam for every child to make sure that their vision is perfect so that suitable treatment can be prescribed.
