My name is Sherry Borden, and this is my blog about eye care. I was concerned because my son was getting poor grades in school, and at first I thought that he wasn't paying attention in the classroom. Then I started noticing signs at home that led me to believe he was having trouble with his vision. When he read, he would hold the book close to his face. I also observed that he would squint his eyes when he was reading small print. I made an appointment with the optometrist and my assumption was right. After the eye doctor prescribed eyeglasses for my son, his grades improved. I wrote this blog to help other parents identify the signs of poor vision. If you think that your child is having difficulties seeing, make an appointment with an optometrist. I hope that my blog is helpful for you and your child.
