Your child may have vision screening tests in school, and if no problems are found, you may assume that your child has healthy eyes. However, it's still a good practice to have your child's eyes examined by an optometrist before starting school, and even after school-administered tests have been given. Here's why eye exams are important for kids.
Early Detection Of Problems Allows Early Treatment
If your child has a vision abnormality, you want to treat it as early as possible so it doesn't affect their development.
Eye surgery isn't fun, but the results can be wonderful, whether you're undergoing the procedure voluntarily (e.g., LASIK) or not (e.g., detached retina). Luckily these procedures are usually done as outpatient, allowing you to go home within a short time. This means pretty much all of your recovery will be at home, so you need to make the space more hospitable for your downtime.
Dust and Clean Up
Dust and dirt do not help your eyes in general, and especially not after a surgery.
