See the symptoms, find the problem
Children who are struggling with undetected vision problems often fail to progress well in school. You can use the following checklist to look for the common symptoms that children with vision problems exhibit.
- One eye turns in or out while the other points straight ahead
- Frequent blinking
- Red or watery eyes
- Difficulty concentrating
- Covering or closing one eye
- Holding a book very close to read
- Squinting or sitting very close when watching television
- Complaints of headaches
- Complaints of blurred or double vision.
If your child displays any of these symptoms, we suggest that you visit or contact your local OPSM Optometrist as soon as you can.
