A friend lent me her February copy of Parenting Early Years. On page 79, there is an article called Healthy Ever After. One topic discussed is vision. The article says that “children may not complain about near-sidedness until they’re school age, but it can be detected as early as 3, says Dr. Dankner.” The go on to recommend screenings at 1, especially if you have a family history of “eye problems.”
I think it was a nice little blurb, but like all magazine articles, just touched briefly on an important issue in those of us reading this blog. If you could reach as many audiences as a well publicized magazine, what information would you want to share with other parents?
