For the entire month of October, the optometrists at Central Washington Eye Clinic are providing FREE VISION SCREENINGS to children from 6 months to 5 years old.

Why?? Because by the time children reach preschool there may be vision problems that could easily have been detected and helped far earlier.? Parents seem to be very attuned to the fact that vision is a key factor in successful learning ; that children squinting , headaches and poor reading scores may all be signs of? needing glasses.? However, parents are less aware that children as young as 6 months old can be screened for? eye health, as well as the functioning of the pupils (reflex) , binocularity, and clarity even if the child cannot read.

Pediatricians and pediatric ophthalmologists recommend regular screenings; once by 6 months, again by 3 years and again by 5 years.

Doctors David Moon and John McGiffin at Central Washington Eye Clinic want? to? offer their services? in order to educate parents about what to look for and to ease their minds when it comes to their child?s vision. In actuality 90-9% of all children have no vision issues at a young age, but given the opportunity most parents still would like to know.

Appointments must be made for the free screenings.
