Children's Eye Health and Safety Month

Did you know that it is estimated that 80% of classroom education is taught visually?  

Since August has arrived and a new school year is about to begin, Friends for Sight wants you to make sure to include an eye examination as part of your back to school check list. As part of Child Eye Health and Safety Month, in addition to immunizations and school orientations, it is highly recommended your child receive an eye examination before going back to school.  The inability to see clearly affects not only academic performance but also athletics and self-esteem.  Start the new school year out right by making sure that your student is seeing clearly!
