The start of a new school year can be quite an adjustment for any young scholar, and visual impairments commonly go unnoticed amidst all of the excitement that comes along with turning over a new educational leaf. As our eyesight may gradually change over time, children and teens may not notice subtle shifts in their visual acuity without a thorough comprehensive eye examination.
Metro Eye’s optometrists greatly enjoy helping students successfully transition into the new school year by examining not only what they see, but how efficiently their eyes work together to see it. By incorporating state-of-the-art testing within every comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Amy Jankowski, Dr. Kaelyn Zaporski and Dr. Amanda Kopczyk can detect commonly overlooked impairments such as eye misalignment and convergence insufficiency, in addition to vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, colorblindness and amblyopia.
Since the eyes are a part of the body and interwoven within our complete physical health, eye examinations can also provide evidence of serious health problems including diabetes and high blood pressure.
In addition to their physical wellbeing, your child’s mental wellbeing is incredibly important and uncorrected vision problems can potentially create needless social and emotional challenges. Undiagnosed vision disorders commonly lead to a whole host of difficulties including decreased concentration, lowered self-esteem and behavioral issues.
Metro Eye is dedicated to helping students maximize their capacity for academic, social and athletic advancement. Entrust your family’s ocular health to our expert eye care team and ensure that your child can reach their full potential throughout the new school year and beyond!
