Good Vision In The Classroom

The summer's coming to an end. Moms and dads everywhere are making sure their children have everything they need to ensure a good upcoming school year. This is a great time to take your child for an eye exam, if you haven't already.

A huge percentage of learning is accomplished visually. But even with this obvious link between sight and learning, a lot of people don't seem to be aware of how frequently occurring vision problems are, and as a result, don't get their child's eyes checked often enough. As your kid's vision may change frequently, regular eye and vision care is necessary for success at school.

It is even more important to look out for the signs and symptoms of vision problems as your child progresses in school.

Struggling to meet the visual demands at school may affect his or her academic growth. New technology brought into the classroom, such as the use of interactive whiteboards, can also potentially provoke previously unknown vision problems. Without adequate vision, kids can be at a disadvantage not just at school, but also mentally, physically and emotionally.

If you're the parent of a child who wears glasses already, now is a great time to reassess the suitability of his or her current frames and maybe even buy new glasses for your child for the new school year. The more your son or daughter feels good in his/her glasses, the more they'll be worn!

Find a good time to stop by to see us when you're getting your kids prepared for their year. We'll do our very best to help all the kids we treat commence the year afresh with vision that's in excellent condition.

A Message to Our Patients

TSO Woodlands will continue to follow health and safety guidelines recommended by the CDC by requiring all patients and staff to continue wearing a mask when entering our office for any service. As a healthcare provider we want to ensure the safety of all of our patients and staff. If you arrive without a mask for your appointment, we will be happy to provide one for you.

We understand there are strong feelings on the mask debate and thank you for your cooperation, understanding, and patience as we navigate this challenging time. We look forward to seeing our patients back in the clinic again and strive to provide excellence in eye care while maintaining your health and safety as our highest priority.

Warmest Regards,
Dr. Young and TSO Woodlands Staff
