Are you looking for back to school marketing and messaging assistance? We’ve crafted an email you can customize and send to your patients and messages you can post to your facebook fan page to draw attention to the need for an annual eye exam.
Did you know that August is National Children’s Vision and Learning Month? It’s also back to school time! While you’re likely busy getting your children ready for back to school, or prepping yourself for the return to school and/or work, we wanted to remind you of the importance of an annual eye exam. Comprehensive eye exams go beyond the average visual screening and can detect visual problems, eye diseases, and also indicate other health issues. It is recommended that school-aged children and teens get an eye exam yearly.
Vision Monday, the optical industry’s leading news site, reports that 60 percent of children who’ve been identified as “problem learners” actually suffer from undetected vision problems, according to studies from the American Optometric Association. The studies even reported that in certain cases, children have been inaccurately diagnosed with common learning disorders such as attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
