School Eye Exams vs Comprehensive Exams: With approximately 80% of what a child learns in school being presented visually, many children may not be getting a fair chance at learning if their vision is impaired.
August is National Children’s Vision and Learning Month. Uptown Eye Care’s Dr. Mary Gregory will be offering no cost eye exams to 4 and 5 year olds that will be entering kindergarten this fall. This is a great opportunity to make sure your children are ready for learning with good sight!
Students spend more than 75 percent of school time doing intense, visual work less than a foot from their eyes, but not all students’ vision can handle that intense workload. Thus, vision is an often overlooked component of learning and reading problems. Here is a fun workshop that will give you practical tools to help children who are having trouble with learning.
Dr. Gregory of Uptown Eye Care will be speaking speaking at the Monticello Rotary Club meeting on November 21st at the Best Western Chelsea Inn and Suites in Monticello. Dr Gregory’s topic will be Vision & Learning.
