September Eye Observance
September is "Children's Eye Health and Safety" Month
As children return to school, parents naturally consider how to help their children learn and succeed. Good vision and eye health are key to students' ability to do well in the classroom, on the playground, in sports, and when studying at home. September is "Children's Eye Health and Safety" month, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) encourages families to make sure students receive vision screening and learn eye health and safety practices. Also, it's important for parents of children with learning disabilities to know how vision does - and does not - play a role.
Parents may have questions to how the eyes and vision interact with learning disabilities in children. Learning disabilities result from the brain's misinterpretation of images received and relayed by the eyes, rather than from structural or functional eye problems. That's why learning disabilities are not treatable by eye exercises or vision therapy. If learning disabilities are suspected, students need testing, followed as appropriate by in-depth exams and treatment. And whether or not learning disabilities are suspected, all students need vision screening to check visual acuity and eye health.
Vision screening is essential
to early detection of problems that impact
learning and quality of life.
