In October, Warsaw elementary schools perform MCT (Modified Clinical Technique) vision screenings for all 1st grade students.  The early elementary years are an important time to catch vision abnormalities a child might have.  Having good vision helps children to read better, learn better, and provides them with more self-esteem when accomplishing their goals.

Having poor vision can affect a child’s learning process, interrupting reading, writing and other skills.  Many children do not know that they have poor vision, they think it is normal. A vision screening at school can help find those who might be struggling in class visually.  Vision screenings at school do not take the place of a comprehensive eye exam by a professional doctor.  It is highly advised that ALL children of all ages be seen by an eye care professional on a yearly basis.  

Things you can do at home to help maintain healthy eyes:
See an eye care professional yearly
Wear glasses/contacts daily if prescribed
Wear sunglasses on sunny days – do not look directly into the sun
Get plenty of rest
Drink plenty of water – to help keep eyes hydrated
Eating vegetables helps to provide vitamins and minerals that eyes need
See an eye doctor anytime you feel you are having a problem with yours eyes, such as itchiness, excessive drying, drainage, or injury to eye.

Dr Hoffert read the book, My Best Buddy by YeShil Kim. It is the story of an unusual friendship. An 85 year- old student and a 2nd grade student attend the same school in the same grade in their village. Mamello shares many of his life lessons with his young friend, Kamau, as well as his dream to learn to read and write even at the age of 85. Kamau shares his dream to run as fast as the ostriches. They encourage one another in pursuit of their dreams. The lessons of friendship and perseverance are developed throughout the book. One of the favorite lines from the book is "it is never too late to make your dreams come true."
