ONE OF THE MOST-IMPORTANT THINGS THAT PARENTS CAN DO TO PREPARE THEIR CHILD FOR A NEW SCHOOL-YEAR IS TO TAKE THEM TO AN EYE-DOCTOR, FOR A YEARLY, COMPREHENSIVE EYE-EXAM.  ACCORDING TO THE "AMERICAN OPTOMETRIC ASSOCIATION", ONE-IN-FOUR STUDENTS WILL START SCHOOL THIS YEAR WITH AN UNDIAGNOSED VISION-PROBLEM THAT COULD IMPAIR THEIR ABILITY TO LEARN--AND COULD ULTIMATELY AFFECT THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE.  IN ADDITION, THE FREQUENT USE OF DIGITAL DEVICES--BOTH AT HOME AND AT SCHOOL--CAN ALSO TAKE A TOLL ON A CHILD'S VISION.  SOME WARNING-SIGNS THAT COULD INDICATE A POTENTIAL VISION-PROBLEM ARE: FREQUENT HEADACHES, SQUINTING WHILE READING OR WATCHING T-V, AND HOLDING READING-MATERIAL CLOSER THAN NORMAL.  IF PARENTS NOTICE ANY OF THESE BEHAVIORS, THEY SHOULD SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THEIR CHILD TO SEE AN EYE-DOCTOR.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT CHILDREN'S VISION, VISIT "A-O-A"-DOT-ORG.
