See To Learn: a free vision and eye health assessment for 3-4 year olds

Is your child ready to learn? You definitely want your child to do their best in school, so you buy them school supplies, you bring them to the doctor, you buy them new clothes… but do you make sure they can see clearly? 80% of learning involves their eyes so it is critical to be sure they can see their best. That’s where See To Learn can help. By following these 3 steps you can do your part to make sure your child sees well and is ready to See To Learn!

Step 1:

Stay vigilant. As parents, guardians and educators, it’s up to us to recognize the signs of vision problems in the children we care for. See To Learn has the resources to keep you informed about common symptoms, which can crop up at any age.

Step 2:

Get the test. Three and four year olds are given a free vision and eye health assessment from a participating Eye Care Council optometrist. Early detection can be key: Serious conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (turned eye) require intervention before age 5.

Step 3:

Follow up. Before or during a child’s first year of school, schedule an examination with an optometrist. Every year, 25 percent of starting kindergartners have vision issues affecting their ability to learn, which may not be detected in school-performed screenings.

At the EyeCare Centers of Aitkin and McGregor we are proud to be See To Learn providers. Let us help you make sure your child’s eyes are ready for school.
