Students’ Success Begins With Healthy Vision

Now that the new school year is in full swing, your kids have classes, projects, and homework to complete every day. You’ve done a great job preparing them with everything they need to succeed—lunchboxes filled with healthy meals; lots of pens, pencils, and notebooks for assignments; and plenty of help with math homework. 

But consider that more than 80% of a child’s learning happens through vision, and it’s easy to understand how an undiagnosed vision problem could impact learning and performance, grades, self-esteem, and more. That’s why regular eye exams are so important for your child. Sometimes, undetected vision problems are mistaken for a learning disability, such as dyslexia or ADD.

Below are some of the major warning signs that your child is suffering from vision problems.

If your child complains of any of these issues, it’s time to make an appointment with your optometrist. After all, Dr. Williamson specializes in pediatrics!  Your child deserves the best when it comes to education, and success in the classroom begins with healthy vision!

We have an excellent selection of kids’ frames and plenty of offerings for kids in need of vision correction, medical and visual treatment, binocular vision issues, ocular surface conditions, and all other visual and ocular health barriers to success.  We want your children to succeed just as you do, and we are committed to helping them do just that.

With much of our pediatric patient base coming from local school districts including Walled Lake, Farmington, Novi, West Bloomfield, Huron Valley and nearby private schools, we make strong efforts to understand the visual setup of the classroom and keep abreast of trends and changes in education.

If your child fails a vision screening at school or the pediatrician’s office, bring them in for a checkup with Dr. Williamson.  You’ve done the hard work of getting them prepared for a great year. We’ll handle the rest.
