Dr. Trusty said that one in four children have a vision problem that impairs their learning.
“Most often I find parents who think their children can see just fine because the child does not complain. However, a child’s vision slowly deteriorates, so they get used to their demised vision and do not realize they are not seeing clearly until they have an eye exam and get fitted for their new prescription. They may complain of headaches, move closer to what they are trying to see, start squinting, struggle to learn or even become disruptive in class because they can’t concentrate because they cannot see properly,” Dr. Trusty said. “If we can help children see, we can help them succeed. Their vision may be an easy fix.”
“You only have to see a child walk out the door with their new glasses on, stop on the front step and just look around like they are seeing a new world and it is all worth it.”
