Why Kids Need Eye Exams
Keeping your children truly healthy, to us, means taking a Total Care Program approach. Eye exams are part of that approach. Undiagnosed vision issues can manifest in headaches, neck pain, and other health defects. Plus, it may affect their learning and performance in school.
Risk factors for children include:
- Low birth weight or family history of premature birth.
- Infections such as rubella, or diseases such as HIV occurring during pregnancy.
- Slow developmental process.
- History of eye disease in the family.
- Crossed eyes or turned eyes.
