As parents send their children back to school, one of the most important things they can dots help ensure their child's ability to learn is to take them for an eye exam. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends comprehensive eye exams especially for children entering preschool and kindergarten. Proper vision detection and correction in young children may affect much more than their ability to see clearly. Without a comprehensive eye exam by &n;optometrist or an ophthalmologist, many children have vision problems that can go undiagnosed, and may even be misdiagnosed as a leaming disorder.
