The North Carolina Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons and the American Academy of Ophthalmology are observing Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month this August. The goal is to encourage parents to recognize the importance of vision and learning how to protect children's eyes for the future.
The four tips include:
1. Get regular childhood vision screenings.
2. Know and share your family’s health history.
3. Watch children for signs of eye problems.
4. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports.
With the school year on the horizon, parents in every state can take steps to focus on eye health.
