this morning I saw a newspaper article hanged on the window of an optometrist shop near my home.
at the top, a big picture of a child with glasses and underneath it the title “eye test will prevent learning problems at school”
and don’t be wrong, it’s not the advice of optometrists but no less than the ophthalmology section at a well-known hospital in my country.
in that article, you can find the ophthalmology crew recommendation on an eye test for every child, even if he doesn’t complain about vision problems and his parents don’t observe any difficulty, because an early diagnosis can prevent difficulties with starting first grade at school".
without a doubt, this article hanging on the optometrist’s window is going to bring him a lot 6 years old clients. SADLY!!!
