Children's Vision & Learning

Below are some guidelines and information about children’s vision as well as some links to sites for further information.

The bottom line is: Your child’s ability to see clearly in school will have an enormous impact on their ability to learn. As parents, you can ensure that your child’s academic performance is maximized from the beginning of their educational career by having their eyes examined by an optometrist. Undiagnosed and, therefore, untreated vision problems among our children represent one of the most serious, yet overlooked, health issues facing our nation.

Under the “Clear Vision, Bright Future” Initiative, Wisconsin optometrists have partnered with parents, school district administrators, school nurses and other health providers to encourage students to receive the eye health and vision care they need. This Initiative provides the opportunity not only to enhance the academic future of your child, but also to provide a strong foundation for those who may be at-risk for visual learning problems.

Parents & Teachers- Please do not assume that a child has healthy eyes and no problems seeing in school. That assumption could risk the child's future eye health and school achievement. Have their eyes examined.
