August is National Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month
August 24, 2018
Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month is a great time to focus on your child’s vision—and more.
Alicia Feis, O.D., FAAO, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at the Arizona College of Optometry and pediatric optometrist at the Midwestern University Eye Institute in Glendale, Arizona, was recently interviewed for Cox Cable’s “Your Health” show about children’s vision and ocular health. Dr. Feis offers tips on when to have your child’s first comprehensive eye exam (hint: it’s earlier than you might think) and signs that could indicate your child might be experiencing eyestrain as schoolwork starts up again.
