If your child has a vision problem, will you even know how to tell?
It can be hard to determine whether they need glasses, but there are a few things you can do.
Comparing your vision to your child's is one way to uncover a potential problem.
If they cannot read something you can, that is an indicator.
A growth spurt can also expose a vision problem.
When the eye grows, usually towards the teenage years, it is common for vision problems to start.
Frequent headaches, eye pain and fatigue are other signs your child needs glasses.
If your child is experiencing any of these signs, be sure to get them to the pediatrician.
