Back To School Glasses With Our Optometry Team In Tupelo
Having good sight is something that can help children to succeed in school. There are times when students in the Tupelo area might not be able to see the whiteboards at the front of the class or read their books properly. This adds challenges to the already difficult task of learning. Dr. L.P. Britt, PA is ready to care for your child’s eyes.
Eye exams for children
The American Optometric Association recommends that all children have an eye exam at 6 to 12 months old, once between three and five years old, and annually throughout their school career. This helps to find problems with the eyes that might point to a need for glasses or other tools that might improve the child’s vision. Putting your child’s eye health as a top priority can help you to ensure that you are giving them the best chance possible.
Contacts and glasses for children
Around 30 percent of boys and almost 40 percent of girls ages 6 to 17 need glasses or contacts. One of the biggest decisions that you can make when you find out that your child needs vision correction is which option is going to work. Typically, older children, such as teens, will choose contacts. Younger children are more likely to use glasses because they are unable to handle the responsibility of contact lenses.
Once you have decided which one your child will use, our staff members will help you to get the frames or lenses that your child needs. If you choose to go with glasses, we have some fun options that you can have your child try on that might make them feel more secure with the glasses.
