It's critical to make eye exams part of your back-to-school routine
(BPT) - Reading the computer, chalkboard and books are critical elements of getting an education that can lead students to reaching their full potential and making their goals and dreams come true.

In fact, one in four students in kindergarten through sixth grade has an undetected vision problem that can interfere with their ability to read and learn, according to the American Optometric Association.

While scheduling your children's doctor and dentist visits before they head back to school this year, it's important to remember that an eye exam is just as important. The ability to see clearly and comfortably can directly impact children's performance both in and out of the classroom.
