School-age Children

A pre-kindergarten exam is a must (don't assume school offered vision screenings are enough).

  • About 80 percent of what children learn in the first 12 years comes through the eyes.2
  • Up to 25 percent of school-age children may have vision problems that can affect learning.2
  • The good news is that annual eye exams can protect children's vision, overall health and provide insight into their learning.

Teenagers

Puberty is no joke. Teenagers' bodies are quickly changing, and changes to their eyesight is no exception.

In addition to changes in their ability to see things up close (nearsightedness or 'myopia') and far away (farsightedness or 'hyperopia') teens can also suffer from :

  • Dry eyes
  • Sports injuries
  • Digital eye strains

It's important to have an annual eye exam during and after puberty to make sure teens are seeing (and looking!) their best.

  • 202.6 million adults in the United States with vision correction.3
  • 29.9 million require some form of vision correction but don't use any.3
