Child Eye Health and Safety Month
submitted by Sarah GarciaWelcome back for a wonderful new 2017-2018 school year!
Your Warsaw School Nurses would like you to know that August is "Child Eye Health and Safety Month!"
According to Friends for Sight, it is estimated that 80% of classroom education is taught visually. That means that your child's eyesight is integral for success in school. The beginning of the school year is the perfect time to make sure your child has a comprehensive eye examination so he or she can see clearly. Blurry vision can adversely affect your child's performance on homework, standardized tests, grades, and athletics. It can also cause physical symptoms like headaches, cause frustration, and even lower self-esteem.
Help your child succeed in school, and get a jump-start on a wonderful school year, by getting a routine eye exam to make sure you know he or she can see clearly!
