School failure and visual problems

 

Studies carried out by the National College of Opticians and Optometrists indicate that one out of every three cases of school failure is related to visual problems. In our country, one out of every four schoolchildren suffers from visual defects such as myopia, hyperopia, “lazy eye” or strabismus that can affect their academic performance.

There are several symptoms and signs that can serve as alarm signals for parents and teachers to detect the existence of a visual problem in time. If the child gets too close to the television, scratches his eyes a lot, gets red eyes in general, gets too close to books… he is a child who in general is straining, has headaches, does not see the blackboard well, complains of double vision, etc. However, many of the pathologies can go unnoticed and, if not detected in time, the child’s brain becomes accustomed to the deficiency and the alteration can worsen.

For this reason, specialists recommend at least an annual eye examination starting at the age of four, with the beginning of the school year being the best time for children. Periodic check-ups are the best method, thanks to their high efficiency, to detect and treat the most common disorders in time, avoiding a loss of vision and even preventing them in 50% of the cases.

At Interoptics we are at your disposal and encourage all parents to make an appointment with us for a complete check-up, totally free of charge for their children, whether you have noticed any symptoms, or simply because you have never had your child’s eyesight checked and want to make sure that your child’s school performance is not affected by any vision problems.
