Ensuring that your child is seeing clearly - it's as easy as A,B,C ( Always Book your Child a regular visual assessment)...
Did you know that more than one and a half Million (1.6 Million) school–aged children in England could be living with an undiagnosed vision problem that impacts on their educational and social development? (According to figures released by National Eye Health Week)...
According to the same study this includes
LONDON 263,212 children
SOUTH EAST 259,120 children
THAT'S OVER HALF A MILLION CHILDREN LIVING IN LONDON AND THE SOUTH-EAST!!
Many of these children will not appear to have any issues which is one of the reasons that they often go undetected, but the effects of their visual problems can be far reaching and affect many different aspects of their lives.
Children often can’t tell us when they aren’t seeing well, to them the vision they have is normal.
This means that it having your children's vision checked is more important than ever.
At i-Care Optometry we recommend initial eye examinations at 6 months, 18 months and 3 years for children with a regular check up from then onwards.
