Visit An Eye Doctor
Visit an Eye Doctor
An eye doctor can check what your eyes need
To help you see, all you can see.
They have special tools for you to look through
That tells them how to improve your view.
Seymour’s eye doctor said he needed glasses,
and other children help their eyes with patches.
Seymour thinks good sight is cool,
and thanks to KidSight, he does great in school.
For Parents & Educators
Eye care professionals estimate that 80% of learning occurs through the eyes, so healthy vision is necessary for success in school. If your child received a referral from KidSight, be sure to take him/her to the eye doctor as soon as possible for a full, dilated eye exam and any necessary treatment. Early detection and treatment of problems is the key to healthy vision.
Above is a search tool that KidSight created to help parents find a child-friendly eye doctor near them. If you have any questions about the search tool, want more information about your child’s referral, or just want help finding eye care in your area, please call us at 573-777-8567 or toll-free at 855-4KIDSIGHT. We’d love to hear from you.
Eye doctors recommend that all children receive an eye exam before starting grade school. Children with learning problems, vision problems, or a family history of childhood vision problems should get exams earlier.
