AUGUST IS CHILDREN’S VISION AND LEARNING MONTH

This proclaimation "serves to educate parents, teachers, and the general public about the importance of vision and proper eye care to the success of each child; and

"vision plays a vital role in allowing Ohio's children to read and learn; and

approximately one in four school-age children has vision problems, making vision problems among the most handicapping conditions in our children today; and

the State of Ohio recognizes the importance of education in the lives of our children, and encourages parents to have their children screened for vision problems in order to maximize their potential in the classroom!"
