Did you know that vision is responsible for 80% of all learning in a child’s first twelve years?^ Poor vision can interfere with your child’s learning and social development, yet 1 in 5 children suffers from an undetected vision problem. A child’s eyes are central to their school life. Whether they are playing sport, reading, writing or using a digital device, their eyes are working hard.
One test your child can’t afford to miss
It’s important for children to have an eye examination prior to starting primary school and every couple of years thereafter, to monitor their vision and eye health. For your child, that may include a blue control lens to block out the harmful effects of regular screen use. Ask your optometrist about it!
Don’t forget that we can process any private health fund or optical claims during your visit.
So, help your child be their best and book them in for a comprehensive eye examination. It may be the most important thing you do for them this year.
