Video transcript: Why is it important for children to have routine vision care?

Children as they develop have unique changes in their eye. First of all, their eye is growing, it is elongating. And many children as they are growing will rapidly increase in their amount of myopia or nearsightedness, which means that they won’t be able to see for example what the teacher is putting up in front of the classroom. And we feel it is very important that children get their eyes examined every year. It is always important for the health of the eye but also to keep up with these rapid vision changes that they’re going through as they grow.
