With a brand new school year underway, it is important that your little one’s vision is in tip top shape.  Poor sight can hinder performance in the classroom which makes it very important to pay attention to possible cues.  How can you tell if your child has a vision problem?

Squints, Blinks, and Tilts

A common sign of a vision problem  can be frequent  squinting,blinking, or tilting of the head. Your child may be doing this to  focus on an object that appears blurry.

Losing Their Place

Constantly losing their place while reading can indicate a difficulty with  seeing the individual words in a sentence. This often indicates some sort of vision issue.

Rubbing Eyes

The  last major indicator of a vision problem is the repeated gesture of rubbing the eyes. Your child may be doing this because his/her eyes may be strained due to lack of visibility.

If you begin to notice these symptoms occurring over and over again, be sure to bring your child to the nearest Dr. Tavel location for an eye exam. Our $59.98 Kid’s Package makes it easy to get your child’s sight back on track.
