During the summer children spend a lot of time on the beach or in the pool, make changes in their diet and are more exposed to external factors such as solar radiation. The combination of all these factors negatively affects children’s eyesight, so it is essential to have a check up after the summer.
In addition, childhood is a key stage in psychomotor development, in which vision plays an important role. Children may have graduation defects and have not shown symptoms during the summer, however when returning to school they may begin to notice headache and lack of concentration.
Detecting these refractive errors as soon as possible is essential to control it and for the child to start using glasses.
