Eyeglasses Retailer, America's Best, Supports Children's Eye Health and Safety

America's Best wants you to focus on children's eye health with an exam and protective eyewear.

    NORCROSS, GA, February 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- America's Best knows you want the best for your children - you schedule immunizations and physicals, making sure that your children are healthy and safe for the upcoming school year. But do you think about their eye health?

The trouble is that most parents don't think about children's eye health or eye safety unless their child wears prescription glasses. But if your children are involved in contact sports, protective eyewear can help prevent eye trauma. Sadly, even poorly used fitness equipment can be a danger if it hits your child in the eye.

Many parents also don't think about taking their child to see an eye doctor unless they are having trouble seeing. The truth of the matter is that eye health involves more than just whether your child needs eyeglasses.

During a routine eye exam, your optometrist will screen your child for diseases like glaucoma which may manifest itself initially as a headache before your child ever notices a difference in his or her vision. The doctor will screen your child for vision problems, but will also discuss how to keep her eyes healthy. For older students, they may discuss how to avoid eye strain while studying.

"Children who are afraid of having to wear glasses may not mention a vision problem to their parents or may not realize how important it is to note any changes in their vision immediately. An annual screening can help detect eye health issues before they become eye health problems," said Dr. Grace Kim, Chairperson for Clinical Advisory Panel for America's Best.
