Growing up with an undiagnosed visual difficulty could affect your child’s development and learning. In fact, it’s estimated that one in four children struggle at school because of an undiagnosed sight problem, seriously affecting their learning at a crucial age.
The warning signs of an undiagnosed visual problem are varied, but include:
Sitting very close to the television
Reluctance to read
Squinting or tilting the head to see better
Frequent eye rubbing
Complaining of headaches or tired eyes
We would recommend first bringing your child to see us for an eye test before they start school so that their education isn’t compromised.
To find out more about our eye examination process, or to book your appointment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
