"Vision problems among preschoolers may be more common than previously thought.

"That's the conclusion of researchers who conducted two large studies funded by the National Institutes of Health.

"Previously, it was estimated that one in 20 preschoolers had vision problems. But the studies show that as many as one out of every four preschool-aged children may have a vision problem that needs attention.

"The studies also show that even mild problems left untreated in childhood may lead to permanent vision loss." Please follow the link to learn more.

Has your preschooler had an eye exam? Have you been concerned about your child's vision?
