CIMA Medical Center in Miami Springs shares some of their health expertise with some symptoms to look out for regarding your child’s vision.
As kids head back to school or jump in for the first time, it’s essential to ensure their vision is functioning correctly. And if they have issues, now is the time to do something about it.
According to the American Optometric Association, one in four school-age children has a vision disorder, yet school vision screenings miss up to 75 percent of children with vision problems. A vision screening provides less than four percent of the information generated during a comprehensive eye exam.
Any of the following symptoms could signal a vision issue. If you notice your child experiencing one or more, be sure to visit us or to tell your eye doctor:
- Frequent blinking or eye rubbing
- Short attention span
- Complaint of feeling tired or uncomfortable
- Avoiding reading or other activities that require close-up vision.
- Frequent headaches
- Covering one eye
- Tilting the head to one side
- Holding reading materials too close to the face.
- An eye turning in or out
- Seeing double
- Losing place when reading
- Difficulty remembering what they read
