Middle childhood is a common time for the recognition of vision problems, especially when children first have assigned seats in classrooms. Vision screening, an important part of your child's checkups, may reveal the need for further vision testing.
Vision screening is a very important way to identify vision problems. During an exam the doctor looks for eye disease and checks to see if the eyes are working properly. Children with a family history of childhood vision problems are more likely to have eye problems.
