Most parents take their children to dentists and pediatricians for regular checkups. However, what some parents fail to realize is that children also require regular eye care.  Healthy eyes and vision are a critical part of a child’s development.  Their eyes should be examined regularly, as many vision problems and eye diseases can be detected and treated early.


Prevent Blindness suggests that one in 20 preschoolers and one in four school-age children is affected by vision problems.  Because many vision problems begin at an early age, it’s important that children receive proper eye care.


Dr. Elizabeth Congdon, an optometrist with BayCare Clinic Eye Specialists, is passionate about working with children.  In this video, she answers questions parents might have, like when should you get your child’s eyes checked and what signs to look for that would suggest your child has vision problems.
