Dr. Dolman Answers Your Eyecare Questions

What are some of the warning signs to look out for to identify a possible vision problem in children?

Children with distance vision blur might squint to try to read from the white/smart board at the front of the class. Children with near vision blur might blink more frequently or rub their eyes to try to clear the reading material. Unfortunately most children with a vision problem will not show any warning signs. That’s why an annual eye exam should be part of every family’s routine.
