March Break and Children's Vision

March Break Children Eye ExamAs your children are off this week enjoying March break, sometimes as parent's we forget to get regular eye exams for our kids as the thought really doesn't cross our minds. However, it is important to ensure their are not having any visual issues. 


Does your child sit too close to the TV, or hold their book too close to their eyes? Easily loses their place while reading? Have you noticed them squinting to read more often? Have they been turning an eye in or out? Does your child get frequent headaches? Or experiencing double vision? If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions, it is important for you to have your child's eyes examined by an licensed eye care professional at Eyes on Derry
