Kids, parents, and educators are gearing up to head back to school. Because healthy eyesight can help improve a child’s chance at success in the classroom, Prevent Blindness Wisconsin encourages parents to make sure their children’s eyes are healthy before they head back to school this fall. Having a vision screening or a complete eye exam from an eye care professional will help detect any vision issues that could hinder a child’s ability to learn, play, and succeed.
