Your child’s eyesight has a major impact on every other aspect of their life. Children often don’t realize when something is wrong with their eyesight, so as a parent, you need to be aware of the signs that your child has vision problems. Your expert optometrist from Six One Six Vision Center explains what these signs are below.
They Struggle to Read
If your child is struggling to read or learn, they may have poor eyesight. Watch to see if your child loses their place on the page or skips lines when they read. Another sign to look for is if they use their hand to assist them when reading.
They Keep Covering One Eye
Your child might need some form of vision correction if they keep covering or closing one of their eyes when reading a book or watching TV. They do this to help their eyes focus. Let our expert eye doctor give your child a comprehensive eye exam to discover the cause.
They Experience Frequent Headaches and Nausea
Your child might experience frequent headaches or nausea due to the extra effort it takes to bring words and objects into focus. If your child keeps having headaches even though they don’t seem sick otherwise, we recommend scheduling an eye exam.
