IN HONOR of World Sight Day, Children's Vision Massachusetts will begin a social media campaign: "Don't Wait."
CVMA's intent is to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of potential vision problems in children, including young children. If frequently observed, these signs can indicate the need for further examination by an eye doctor.
Too often early signs of a vision problem are misinterpreted by adults as social, behavioral or even personality traits of the child, and the vision problem remains undetected. As vision screenings in schools and preschools may temporarily be on hold this school year, it is even more important that adults understand these early signs.
Look out for, and share, our "Don't Wait" posts on CVMA social media sites beginning October 8th! And above all, take action if you frequently observe any of the signs in children under your care.
