10 Signs Your Child May Have To See an Optician Immediately

Ineh Olisah

Did you know that about 80 percent of what children learn in school is taught visually? That means if your child has an uncorrected vision problem, it could severely affect his or her development. Parents of children who paid an early visit to the optician will tell you they most probably noticed a difference in their child’s performance.

A child won’t be able to tell if they are experiencing vision problems on their own, therefore it’s up to parents to rely on visual cues that can determine if an eye exam is needed.
