Our Philadelphia Optometrists Discuss the Importance of a Back to School Vision Exam for Your Children

While your child needs a variety of abilities to succeed in school, good vision is one of the most important. A back to school vision exam with one of our Philadelphia optometrists is one of the best things you can do to help your children perform well academically, mentally, and physically.

Regular Eye Exams Ensure Clear Vision that Helps Students Succeed Academically, Physically and Mentally

Reading, writing, working with a chalkboard, and using a computer are essential tasks in the classroom and they all require clear vision. As much as 80 percent of learning occurs through a child’s eyes, according to the American Optometric Association. Through a back to school eye exam and other types of optometry care, optometrists help students learn as much as possible during the school year.

Good vision is also essential for sports. Clear vision is necessary for good hand-eye coordination, which helps your child anticipate and hit that fast-moving baseball or catch a football. Eye-foot coordination is important for soccer. Good depth perception helps your child sink a basketball. Clear vision also helps your child enjoy watching sports, as being in the bleachers is more fun when you can see all the action.

A back to school exam helps your children explore the world and appreciate all its complexity and beauty. Clear vision also gives your kids the confidence they need to succeed socially. Help your child succeed in school, on the playing field, and in life with a back to school eye exam. Schedule an appointment for a back to school eye exam today.
