In honor of Kids Eye Health and Safety Month, we encourage your children to book an eye exam before school starts. It is very important to take your children to the eye doctor so we can detect refractive errors and more early on. It’s important to determine if your child has nearsightedness, far-sightedness, or astigmatism which are the common refractive errors, but there are other conditions to look out for as well. For example, the earlier we detect amblyopia as well as color blindness and depth perception, the better we can do to refer to the right pediatric ophthalmologist for more treatment and care.
The Vision Council reports symptoms like reduced attention span, irritability, eye strain, headaches if a child is exposed to screen time for two hours or more. In this digital age, it is important to monitor your kids’ usage of these devices and get their eyes checked today! Also, be sure to rest your eyes at the appropriate time so that you will reduce eye strain and headaches!
20/20/20 rule is recommended to - every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. The 20/20/20 rule was popularized by Dr. Jeff Anshell, a specialist in “vision ergonomics.” This should reduce eye strain caused by looking at digital screens for too long.
