Children Eye Exam
All children under the age of 19 are covered by MSP for their annual eye exam. According to a report, 1 in 5 children have an undetected eye problem. Needless to say, this can be very damaging to the child’s educational development, since 80% of what children learn is through vision. Quite often, children do not realise that there is a problem with their eyesight. Gradually, being unable to read what the teacher writes upon the board can start to cause a decline in learning and they can start falling behind in class, leading to emotional problems and a misdiagnosis with learning problems. This is why it is important to get your kids tested early, so that any potential problems can be identified and acted upon.
