It's hard to believe, but it’s August already and that means school is right around the corner! Enrollment forms and orientation schedules are being completed, immunizations are being done and well visits are being accomplished--but what about your child's eyes?
August is Children’s Eye Safety and Health Month - the perfect time for me to talk about the importance of taking care of your children’s eyes (and your own, of course!). According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), healthy eyes and good vision play critical roles in how infants and children learn to see. It is estimated that 80% of learning occurs through vision. The AOA recommends eye care check-ups starting at age 6 months followed by every two years - even if no eye or vision problems are apparent - and more frequently if experiencing signs that may indicate a vision problem (see signs below).
A few weeks ago Anne posted about one of our favorite rimless frame lines - Silhouette Eyewear. We love this line for a multitude of reasons, though providing our clients with the best vision is obviously our first and foremost goal. Fortunately for the fashionista inside us, Silhouette offers a way to achieve great vision in a super stylish way!
Patients frequently ask me about seeing spots in their vision. While most “spots” or “floaters” are not harmful, they may be an indication of a serious problem. It is always a good idea to check with an optometrist if you are noticing them more frequently or if you have sudden changes in your eyes or eyesight.
