Back to School! 20/20 isn't everything!

CVM_Infographic_ON_English.jpg

It is that time of year again and the eyeLABS team wants to remind you to have your child's eyes and eye health comprehensively examined by our doctors.  The first month of school is a challenging time for children to adjust to new rooms, subjects, fonts, friends and all the excitement that it brings.  Vision is critical to learning as you'll see in the below video, produced by Dr. Richard Maharaj and Dr. Chris Schell on why 20/20 isn't everything you think it is.  A simple experiment on 4 adult teachers shows us all why we cannot take our kids eyes for granted.  

This October will be "Children's Vision Month" and Doctors of Optometry across Canada will aim to reach every child by a month-long media campaign to educate the public on why our children require comprehensive visual assessments.  A school screening doesn't replace that and parents should be aware.  Also from September 23 to November 4, 2014 Doctors of Optometry will run a Children's Vision Month Sweepstakes with more than $5000 in prizes.  Stay tuned to eyeLABS blog and website for coming information.
