Eyesight plays a vital role in a child reaching their full potential
Healthy eyes and good vision play a crucial role in how a child learns to see. The ability to move and focus eyes accurately, and use them together as a team must be learnt. Children also learn how to process the visual information sent to the brain, so that they can make sense of the world around them. Any interruption or delay to this visual development can have a negative effect on a child reaching their full potential. At dean samarkovski OPTOMETRIST, we care about the development of all childrens eyes and recommend all parents look for the following signs that may indicate an eye or vision problem.
