Did you know that vision is responsible for 80% of all learning in your child’s first 12 years?

Poor vision can interfere with your child’s learning and social development, yet often goes unnoticed.

That’s why it’s important for children to have an eye examination prior to starting school and again every 2 years throughout their life, to monitor their vision and eye health.

Making this a part of your child’s regular health care routine will give you peace of mind and confidence that they won’t miss a thing.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS TO BE AWARE OF:

  • One eye turns in or out while the other is straight ahead.
  • Frequent blinking
  • Red or watery eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Frequent rubbing of the eyes.
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Tilting head noticeably
  • Covering or closing one eye
  • Difficulty learning to read
  • Holding a book very close when reading
  • Leaving out confusing words when reading
  • Squinting or sitting very close when watching television
  • Difficulty recognising familiar people from a distance
  • Complaints of headaches, blurred or double vision.
