The Bright Side of KidZ

Slide Number: 1 of 58 Total Slides
Introduction:
Childhood is a critical time in the development of the eye and when good and bad eye care habits are formed. Many vision problems – such as trouble seeing up close or far away – first develop during childhood. While these problems are not life threatening, they need to be corrected early in order to avoid both short- and long-term consequences that can follow children into adulthood. There are also unique risks to eyesight that should be considered when dispensing to kids. And since the way children use their eyes today is different than past generations there are special considerations that need to be addressed for Generation Z
