|We are asking parents to make appointments
now for their children to reduce the instances of eye and vision
problems going undiagnosed and untreated in children.
According to the
Optometric Association, state law
encourages comprehensive eye
exams for children entering kindergarten or enrolling for the first time in public, private, or
parochial elementary schools. Since comprehensive eye exams are the best way to
diagnose eye and vision problems in children early, before they interfere with a child’s ability to
learn, we agree that an exam is a crucial step in ensuring that students perform to the best of their ability in the classroom, and
through their growing years.
