Vision Exam

Apr 04, 2024 / General     

The other day, my son tried on my reading glasses.  “Wow!” he said, “I can see really good up close, but far away—it’s blurry.”  That made me think … all children, whether they need glasses or not, are “near-sighted.”  Like my son, they only see what’s up close… what’s happening today at school or tonight after dinner.  Stuff in the distance —college, marriage, career—that’s more fuzzy and out of focus.  Parents are usually more “far-sighted,” and it’s our job to help our kids see things in the distance … what’s in their future.  Here’s more on how to create a vision for your child.
