Parents always have a long “to-do” list during the school season. It’s a very busy time of the year; but in addition to getting new clothes, school supplies, backpacks etc., one thing that shouldn’t take a back seat is vision screening. When it comes your child’s eye health, it’s always best to follow the prevention is better than cure approach.
The (American Academy of Ophthalmology) AAO’s serves as an advocate for the public and patients in relation to protecting sight and empowering lives. The organization has designated August to be “Back-to-School Eye Health month”. We at Vizavance enthusiastically have similar objectives.
We are a non- profit entity in Oklahoma with the primary aim to advance children’s’ education through better eyesight. We offer free eye exams Oklahoma to school children, helping identify vision issues that if left unidentified, could seriously impact the child’s ability to achieve academic excellence.
The importance of regular vision screening
Family physicians, pediatricians, trained technicians or nurses can perform free eye exams Oklahoma, during the course of the child’s standard medical checkup. These screenings don’t take too much time, and help identify problems with vision. If we detect any problem during the screening, the parents will be recommended to take their child for a more comprehensive eye examination that generally involves an eye dilation procedure.
Since only 2-4% of children actually have eye problems that need ophthalmic intervention. Vision screenings are a very efficient and cost-effective method of diagnosing eye conditions in kids, rather than getting a comprehensive eye exam done.
