Understanding the Importance of Children’s Eye Health and Safety

Protecting the Vision of Our Future

August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month, a time to raise awareness about the importance of proper eye care for our children. The eyes are the windows to the world, and safeguarding our children’s vision is a priority.

The Growing Concern of Eye Issues

Studies show that nearly 25% of school-aged children have vision problems1. Early detection and treatment can make a significant difference in a child’s academic performance and overall quality of life.

Thanks to the benefits available through her employer, she was able to get Tim the proper eye care he needed. Now, Tim is back to enjoying his books, and Sarah feels a profound sense of relief, knowing she took the right step for her son’s future.

Tips for Maintaining Healthy Eyes
