Children are susceptible to a host of vision and eye problems, such as injury, infection, and increased nearsightedness. In support of Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) provides information to the public that can help protect and preserve a child’s eye health for life.
If your kids are heading back to school this month, make sure to read this parents’ guide to pink eye. These viral or bacterial infections spread fast in classrooms! http://bit.ly/1jXLfuE
