10:30 ET Essilor Vision Foundation Reminds Parents To Equip Their Kids With Glasses As They Head Back To School

Sep 1, 2021

Being able to see clearly is necessary for children's academic success News provided by Share this article Share this article DALLAS, Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a new school year for children around the country. Amid all of the preparation and excitement, many parents might have forgotten the most important tool their kids need for school - clear vision. Essilor Vision Foundation  (EVF) encourages parents to take their kids to the eye doctor to help them start the school year right. Essilor Vision Foundation Vision impacts all aspects of a child's life from learning, confidence, and making friends to participating in activities such as sports, art, or music. Yet children don't ask for the help they desperately need because they don't know they can't see clearly. Children rely on their parents to be advocates for their vision care. Here are some common signs and symptoms  to look for that could mean a child is having trouble seeing clearly: Sitting too close to the TV Holding a book or digital device too close Complaining of headaches or tired eyes Squinting or tilting the head to see better Rubbing eyes frequently Parents who suspect their child has a vision problem can use an online vision screening tool  to help determine if their kids need an eye exam with an eye doctor. Early detection is critical, since school-age children with vision impairment can experience lower levels of educational achievement  and self-esteem than their normally sighted peers. Vision is essential for learning One in four school children  in the U.S. has a vision problem significant enough to affect their ability to learn. Vision is a key part of overall health, and vision screenings for school-aged children are required in 39 states. "A child who can't see is a child who can't learn," says elementary school nurse Heidi . "With today's rigor of schoolwork, every second counts. Children who struggle to see are struggling to learn."   Once a child is diagnosed with a vision impairment, families in need may not know how to get vision care for their children. Medicaid covers eye exams, frames and lenses for children under 21 under the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment program , but many people with Medicaid are not aware vision is covered. Making vision a priority in schools Teachers and school nurses are often the first adults to recognize that a child may have a vision problem. EVF wants to reinforce their commitment to helping students and parents understand the importance of clear vision and has launched the $5,000 Reasons to be a Champion for Sight™" sweepstakes * that encourages educators to sign up for Champions for Sight  and gives them the chance to win cash. The Champions for Sight program provides free educational resources to schools to use in the classroom and at home. A total of $5,000 cash will be awarded to 10 winners -- one $2,500 grand prize, four $500 first prizes, and five $100 second prizes. The sweepstakes runs through Sept. 30, 2021, and is free to enter and win. Teachers, nurses and school administrators can enter at . Parents can help spread the word about the sweepstakes by sharing it with their children's educators and posting on their social media. FitnessGram® by The Cooper Institute  is also raising awareness about the importance of clear vision and physical activity among teachers, school nurses and school staff by promoting the sweepstakes. FitnessGram assesses health-related components of fitness of more than 10 million students across the country in over 20,000 schools.
