Eye on Success at Bridgeport Elementary Schools 2015
A child’s routine eye exam is just as important as a routine physical and should be included as part of the back to school healthcare regimen. Eighty percent of all learning in a child’s first 12 years is through the visual system yet children under 12 are the least likely to visit an eye care professional each year.
Since one in four children ages 5-‐12 has a vision problem that may affect their educational performance, Family Vision Center is focused on educating local Bridgeport parents on the importance of routine eye care. The ability to see 20/20 vision typically develops between three and seven years of age, therefore a child’s initial eye exam should ideally be conducted by age three because, by the age of seven, the eye is already developing central vision.
