Are You Getting Your Children Ready for School? Is a visit to the optometrist on your list?

Carrollton Eye Care Services
When the visual demands of homework and computers begin at school, many children will complain of tired eyes, headaches, eyestrain and even double vision. Some children are silent because these symptoms seem normal to them.  This can lead to lower grades, reading problems, poor spelling and low self-esteem.   Q: How many children have undetected vision problems? A: According to the AOA, one in four kids has a vision problem. Q: Doesn’t my child get a vision screening at school? A: There are significant differences between Vision Screenings and Comprehensive Vision Examinations.  Parents should be aware that there may be no set standards and criteria for passing a vision screening.

Happy Cataracts Awareness Month! What You Need to Know

Medical Awareness
August is Cataracts Awareness Month. Here at Eyecare & Eyewear Optometry, our Carrollton eye doctors are celebrating by telling everyone we know everything we know about cataracts.

That sizable chunk of the U.S. population soars, however, when you look at the elderly: almost 70 percent of Americans over the age of 75 are affected by cataracts.…
