Nearly 80% of children's learning comes through the eyes, so it's important that any vision problems are corrected early.
Children should first be seen by an eye doctor at around 6 months of age, at 3 years old, before first grade, and then yearly, depending on risk and doctor recommendation.
Here are a few signs you should look for that may indicate signs of eye and vision problems in children:
- Frequent eye rubbing
- Short attention span
- Avoiding reading
- Covering one eye
- Tilting head to one side
- Holding reading materials close
- An eye turning in or out
- Seeing double
- Losing place when reading
- Difficulty remembering what was read
