August has arrived and that means that many parents are preparing their children for another school year. August is also Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. When 80% of learning occurs through the eyes, healthy vision is essential to a child’s success in the classroom. In addition to buying school supplies and new clothes, don’t forget to add scheduling a comprehensive eye exam as part of your back to school to-do list.
- Frequently rubbing eyes
- Titling or turning their head to look at objects
