Let's Learn
About Your Eyes

Your eyes are amazing
Whether brown, green or blue
They help you to learn
Whatever the hue.
The pupil is the black part of your eye
It lets all the light inside.
The iris gives your eyes color
and tells the pupil how much light to discover.
The sclera is the white part of your eye
that protects everything inside.
Your eyelids also protect your eyes
And let you close them to sleep at night.

For Parents & Educators

Our eyes are wonderful and complex. Use the information above to teach your children how their eyes work. Here are some tips for you:

  • A healthy diet promotes healthy vision, especially a diet full of vegetables and fruit.
  • Children should receive an exam from an eye doctor before starting school. Children found to have learning or vision problems should get exams earlier. The earlier a vision problem is found, the better it can be treated.
  • To find a kid-friendly eye doctor near you, try our Eye Doctor Search Tool.

If your child recently participated in a free vision screening conducted by KidSight, please take a moment to fill out a survey? Your answers will help us improve the efficiency and effectiveness of KidSight. Any information you provide will be greatly appreciated and kept confidential.
