The Importance of Back to School Eye Exams

Back to School Eye Exams

For your child to learn at his maximum capacity, his vision must be the best it can be. A visit to the optometrist’s office for an eye exam can determine if he needs glasses or, if older, contacts. Eye care is essential to your child and for all the members of your family. Our eye doctors at Spadafora & Zak Eye Care in Clarkston provide the quality eye care your child needs to succeed.

Children's Eye Exams

Your child's eyes get their first exam at the hospital when he is born and it is recommended that at some point in his first year, he is examined by an eye doctor to make sure that everything is perfect. By getting regular vision exams, any problems will be noticed and treated as soon as possible.

Back-to-school Exam

If your child has glasses, it is important to get yearly exams to make sure that if there have been any changes in his vision since the last set of lenses, the lenses can be updated. During the back-to-school eye exam, one of our eye doctors will check your child's vision for refractive errors, depth perception, eye tracking, and the general health of his eyes. Having good vision and healthy eyes gives your child the best chance at success in school.

Choosing New Glasses

Before the school year starts, you will most likely take your child to choose a new backpack, lunchbox, clothes, and shoes. Getting new glasses is the perfect complement, even if there haven't been any vision changes. Maybe a new color or a new style. Getting your child excited about how much fun getting new glasses is takes away any reluctance he may have about wearing glasses.
