"EYES ON THE FEATURE ARTICLE OF THE MONTH"
AUGUST IS NATIONAL CHILDREN'S EYE HEALTH AND SAFETY MONTH
It is almost back to school time and you are prepared with your child's enrollment forms, orientation schedules and check ups-but what about their eye exams?
August is Children's Eye Health and Safety Month which is a great signal for you to get your childs eyes examined before their school starts.
Prevent Blindness.org states nearly 25 percent of school-aged children have vision problems. Of children ages 3 to 5, close to one in 20 has a problem that could result in permanent vision loss if left untreated.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that 80 percent of preschoolers do not receive vision screenings.
Take the opportunity to speak with your child about eye safety too. Did you know that eye injuries are one of the leading causes of vision loss in children? Sports related eye injuries are estimated to be 42,000 a year with the majority of them occuring with children. They should wear protective eyeglasses such at Rec Specs while participating in sports or recreational activities.

TIPS FOR HEALTHY EYES
SAFETY FIRST-If you think you need to be wearing safety glasses, put them on!
UV PROTECTION-Sunglasses are not just a fashion statement. Sun damage is serious to the eyes. Always wear sunglasses with 100% UV protection.
HEADACHES- Don't ignore them! Frequent headaches can be a sign of an ocular issue. Call your eye doctor to schedule an appointment.
REST YOUR EYES-Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look about 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This rule is helpful when using a computer or reading for long periods.
EAT YOUR CARROTS-It's true that a diet rich in Vitamin A keeps your eyes healthy. Eat lots of carrots and dark leafy greens.
