It's that time again; going to bed early and getting into the routine for the new school year. Soon after the year begins, many parents bring their children in for an examination because their teacher noticed a problem with them seeing the board. Vision problems can develop quickly as kids are growing and changing. Some visual conditions are obvious and some are much more subtle. Our children may be experiencing symptoms that are not always attributed to the eyes like slow reading speed, inability to read for long periods, drowsiness when reading, and difficulty sustaining concentration on the task. Children and parents alike don't always see these symptoms as visual problems--often they are looked at as behavioral issues. Be sure your child receives a vision evaluation with Dr. Byers and make sure your child is performing to their full potential for the new school year.
