Children's Vision

Most of what children learn prior to school and in the classroom — up to 80 percent, some experts say — is information they take in with their eyes and visual system. This section of All About Vision will help you guarantee your child has clear eyesight and the vision skills necessary to perform at his or her best. This is true whether your child is in the classroom, doing schoolwork at home, viewing a computer screen or participating in sports or other activities both indoors and outside. You also will find information about the effect of prolonged screen time on children’s eyes, how to keep your nearsighted child’s eyes from getting worse year after year, vision correction options for kids, and much more.
