Back to School Eye Exams
With Back to School just around the corner, it is important for parents to make sure their children’s eyes are healthy. Approximately 80 percent of all learning during a child’s first 12 years comes through vision. Dr. Chander wants your children to have a positive experience at school. One of the best things a parent can do is to schedule an eye exam that includes optomap® ultra-widefield digital retinal imaging before schools starts to ensure your child is ready for the school year.
Primary Eye Care Associates offers optomap to patients of all ages because it is important for everyone as part of a comprehensive eye exam to have their retina checked regularly no matter how well you see. A majority of eye problems arise without you even knowing and an optomap allows your Doctor to get an ultrawidefield view of the retina in a fast, painless, and comfortable way.
Good eye health and vision is important to your child’s learning and vision problems can affect their performance in school. Undetected or untreated vision problems can hinder a child’s ability to perform to their full potential in school. In fact, many eye diseases can impair vision or lead to vision loss, which is why it is important for people of all ages to have their eyes checked regularly.
At least 10 to 15 percent – or 8 to 12 million – children are at risk for vision impairments. Prevention of these conditions can be easy so schedule your child’s eye exam today! While you’re at it, schedule your own exam too!
