Lower School students in grades K,1, 3, and all new students in grades 4 and 5 had vision screening done last week. Dr. Ben Konynenbelt of Southwest Orlando EyeCare conducted the screening.
Good vision and eye health are key to your child’s learning and development. A child’s vision continues to develop through the age of 9 years old, and it is important to have your child’s eyes checked so that any issues can be caught early enough to treat.
While eye screening is a great first step to identify a potential issue, it is not as comprehensive as a full eye exam. If your child’s screening results flagged a possible issue, we encourage you to follow up with your child’s primary care doctor to determine if you should seek a more comprehensive exam. In addition to eye screenings, it is important for parents to keep an eye out for other warning signs and symptoms of possible eye issues between screenings. If you have any questions regarding your child’s results, please don’t hesitate to contact Nurse Leslie Schwartz.
