September marks the start of a new school year and while it’s important to stock up on new school supplies and meet your child’s teachers, it’s also essential to add scheduling annual eye exams to your list. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), one-in-four school-aged children suffer from an undetected or untreated vision problem. While most school vision screenings can catch some types of vision problems, they do have their limitations. Tune into Healthy Vision™ with Dr. Val Jones to listen to AOA president Dori Carlson, O.D., optometrist and researcher Jeffrey Walline, O.D. and Clinical Psychology Professor Mitchell Prinstein, Ph.D., talk about how early identification of vision problems and different types of vision correction can impact a child’s self esteem, confidence and performance.
