In addition to getting the proper preventative care, parents should be vigilant about noticing any signs of eye problems. nently threaten a child's eye- sight if not treated early-on, such as amblyopia (lazy eye). Other treatable disorders that can affect the one in four school-age children who has vision problems are crossed eyes, nearsightedness, far- sightedness and tism. In addition, eye focusing, eye tracking and eye coordina- tion problems may affect a ~hild's performance in school and sports. =The majority of what we learn is through the visual processing of information, and if a child has an undi- agnosed vision problem, then it will have an impact upon his or her ability to succeed in school," said Zaba. "So just as you regularly schedule your child for an annual phys- ical or dental appointment, every child should have reg- ular comprehensive vision examinations performed by an eye care professional." Early in the school year, when vision problems often become apparent, is an ideal time to schedule an exam. While finances are tight for many families, affordable, high-quality vision care options are available, such as those at Walmart Vision Centers, which have inde- pendent, licensed optometrists working in or adjacent to the store. There are around 3,000 Walmart Vision Centers across the country, which pro: vide complete eye exams and advice on vision corrections, affordable lenses, frames and contacts. In addition to getting the proper preventative care, par- ents should be vigilant about noticing any signs of eye problems. "A child may assume he or she sees the same way every- one else does, not knowing there is a problem and that the parent or teacher needs to know about it," said Zaba. That is why it is important to be aware of the symptoms of vision problems in children. Frequent eye rubbing or blink- ing, holding reading materi- als close to the face, redness or tearing in the eyes, headaches when reading or writing, squirting or covering one eye, tilting the head to one side, losing place when reading--these are all signs that a child may have vision problems and needs to be seen by an eYe care professional. SALES ~ SERVICE ~ REPLACEMENT BATHROOM REMODEL (NAPS)--Making sure chil- dren get regular, compre- hensive eye exams is a key way that parents can identify treatable problems early and help kids achieve their great- est potential--in the class- room, at home and in sports. Studies show that around 60 percent of children who have been identified as prob- lem learners actually suffer from undetected vision prob- lems and may mistakenly be diagnosed with .attention deficit disorder (ADD) or atten- tion deficit hyperactivity dis- order (ADHD), according to the American Optometric Association. For many children, their only regular vision assess- ment is a school screening; however, simple screenings are meant to indicate a potential need for further evaluation, not to diagnose or treat a problen~ According to The Vision Council, recent studies estimate that 40 to 67 percent of children iden- tified with vision problems during school screenings do not receive the recommended follow-up care by an eye care professional. Dr. Jod Zaba, a spokesper- son for The Vision Council and national lecturer on chil- dren's vision and learning problems, says a vision exam- ination by a licensed eye care professional can identify con- ditions that may perma- Good Vision Keeps Success In Sight For Children
