Going back to school means staring at blackboards, reading tiny text from big books, and scrolling down the computer screen. But for children with impaired vision, these tasks pose a bit of a challenge, especially if they think they have A+ vision. If left untreated, poor eye vision can lead to a poor academic career.

"We know that 80 percent of a child's learning is visual, so if a child's vision is suffering it puts him or her at a disadvantage of learning and succeeding at school," Dr. Mark Jacquot, an optometrist and vice president of the LensCrafters Eye Doctor Board, says. Jacquot adds that often times, teachers interpret the students' troubles as a learning disability, which only adds to the difficulties. "They can be labeled as having some kind of of ADHD when often times all they needed was an eye exam and a pair of glasses." To keep your child from squinting and struggling through the school year, Jacquot offers these easy-to-follow eye care tips.
