Pediatric Eye Health Must Be A Priority
According to a recent article from the Tampa Tribune
, 10 million children in the US have eye problems that have not been diagnosed and only 14% will have had an eye exam by the age of 6.
This is a staggering figure given the direct relationship with a child's development and their ability to see clearly. There are many opportunities to address long-term eye health concerns when a child is young, but it is imperative that young children have routine eye exams.
Our Gordy EyeCare team has long been a proponent of eye health for children and it's one of the large reasons why we have pushed to create a family friendly practice.
If you think that your child might be struggling to see. Or there is a history of eye health in your family, come see us today.CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FAMILY FRIENDLY PRACTICECLICK HERE TO CONTACT THE GORDY EYECARE TEAMimage credit: National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health
