University Vision Centre: Eye Exams for Your Child Before School Starts

At University Vision Centre, our El Paso optometrist offers eye and vision exams for the entire family. If your child is getting ready to head back to school, now is a great time to make sure he or she has had an annual eye and vision exam. This is an important step to take in preparation for your child's upcoming academic year; in fact, these exams are just as important as your child's annual physical!

The Importance of Back-to-School Eye Exams

Back-to-school eye exams are important for a number of reasons. For starters, if your child has had any changes in his or her vision since the last exam, this can be easily detected so that corrective eyewear can be ordered before the new school year starts. This ensures that your child is able to see as clearly as possible in the classroom, which can have a direct impact on academic performance. 

Furthermore, your child's eye exam allows us to check for signs of underlying eye and vision conditions that may otherwise not be obvious. Because a child's eyes develop a great deal during their early school years, these exams are vital for diagnosing, treating, and managing a number of common childhood eye conditions (such as lazy eye). And of course, your child's eye exam provides an excellent opportunity for you and your child to speak with our eye doctor and bring up any questions or concerns you may have. For many parents, this is worth the added peace of mind even if there are no changes in their child's eye or vision health.
