Statistics show that, on average, one in every four of your pediatric patients suffers from a vision problem. In addition, up to five percent of all children in the U.S. have an eye abnormality that could lead to amblyopia (commonly called “lazy eye”) and result in permanent vision loss or blindness if not detected and treated early. Currently, less than 20 percent of all children have a comprehensive eye exam prior to entering the first grade, and studies show pediatric vision problems have a significant academic, social, and emotional impact on preschool or school-age children.
