20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley Helps Students Prepare for Back to School
Date:8/25/2014

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Summer is just about over, which means that school will be beginning again soon. For students, it’s important to maintain healthy vision and avoid vision problems so that they can be successful all year long. 20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley has tips and information on vision problem prevention for students.

Vision problems can affect a student’s ability to learn. This can ultimately affect the success of the student in their studies. It’s important to remember that vision screenings are not the same as having a comprehensive eye exam by an eye care professional.

There are some common signs and symptoms to watch for that may indicate a child has a potential vision problem. Some questions to ask include:

  •     Does the child sit too close to the TV?
  •     Does the child have frequent headaches, especially when reading?
  •     Does the child have difficulty seeing objects at a distance?
  •     Does the child engage in frequent blinking or eye rubbing?

The use of digital devices, including computer, tablet and smart phones, for school or for fun can cause one to develop more vision problems which may need to be corrected by glasses. Many vision problems have an excellent prognosis and are correctable with glasses or contact lenses.

Some vision problems may improve by eye exercises, which help to make the muscles stronger. However, prevention is key and waiting until the child has bad grades before the eyes are tested is too late.

Dr. Jeanette Lee at 20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley promotes preventative medicine and education.

“Now with the use of all the digital devices, I am finding that patients’ eyes are getting worse more often because they are causing too much stress to their eye system,” said Dr. Lee.

All children and adults use their eyes to explore the world and connect with it. It is important that the eyes are balanced, seeing well together and have good health.

“People take their eyes for granted and forget to perform annual maintenance, such as an eye exam, continued Dr. Lee. “A person would not drive a car regularly and never have it checked or refueled with gasoline, so why should you do that to your eyes? Get your eyes checked today!”
