If your child has complained of vision issues, your first thought is likely: “does my child need glasses”? It is also not unusual to be unaware they are having difficulty seeing because they are too little or are not even aware themselves that their vision is ‘blurry’.
If your child is having problems with grades, frustration reading, or behavior changes surrounding school work it may be a problem with their vision. If the child fails their annual vision screening you will receive a referral to a pediatric eye doctor.
