Many parents are not getting the right eye exams for their children.
40% of Americans are myopic (nearsighted), which is up
25% from just 40 years ago.
This increase is especially prevalent among children.
In fact, one in four parents have a child with myopia.
Parents may think that vision screenings at school
or the pediatrician’s office are enough to diagnose vision problems,
but these screenings miss up to
75% of children with vision problems.
While being nearsighted doesn’t sound serious,
if the condition is not managed it may lead to major issues later on in life.
The best way to detect myopia and any other vision issues is through regular comprehensive eye exams.
