3 Signs Your Child Has Vision Problems & May Need Glasses, Cold Spring, Kentucky

Parents are often the first people to notice their child has a health issue. While they can spot a fever and runny nose from a mile away, not every condition is as easy to identify. Would you know if your son or daughter was having trouble seeing? Since they are used to their current level of clarity, your child probably won’t alert you about a potential issue on their own. Thankfully, there are ways to tell. Below, Wing Eyecare in Cincinnati, OH, shares five signs your child has vision problems and may need glasses.

3 Signs Your Child Needs Glasses

1. Skipping Homework

Is getting your child to do their homework a battle every night? It may not be that they’re lazy or don’t know the subject matter. Kids who can’t see well have a hard time reading and writing, which makes them hesitant to try.

2. Falling Behind in School

glassesSimilarly, it may be hard for your child to read the board in class. They may not raise their hand to ask questions about what’s on the board or something they should have read. Ask your child’s teacher if this might be the case. They can move your child to the front of the room and recommend heading to an eye doctor who can prescribe glasses.

3. Rubbing Their Eyes

When your eyes are tired, it’s tempting to ball your hand into a fist and rub them. If your little one is having trouble seeing, you may spot them rubbing their eyes in a similar manner. A vision test will determine if your child needs eyeglasses.

If your son or daughter is having vision trouble, you may be able to spot it at home. Make sure they attend regular checkups at the eye doctor where vision tests will reveal any issues.
