Family Eyecare from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

As they say, seeing is believing. What if you can’t see?  As children, one of the ways that we learn the best and the fastest is by observing the world around us. When we become parents, our children’s eyesight is one of the top priorities, because we are very aware of that.

We want them to see and recognize us. We want to show them the world and relish the look on their faces when they see something for the first time or finally understand a concept because they can physically see how it works. Below are a few tips to help you make sure your little ones can see the big picture.

Feed Them Well

 From the time we are born, every part of us begins to deteriorate, our eyes included. That is why it is imperative that we eat well. As children, there are a lot of things that our parents made us do that most of really didn’t care for very much. Eating healthy was usually one of them.

Mothers everywhere have come up with some pretty amazing ways to get their kids to eat right. For example, convincing your kids to eat broccoli by creating a tree eating contest. Believe it or not, it works pretty well.

There are a few foods that are very well tailored to helping your kiddo’s eyesight mature and maintain proper function and it is not carrots, alone. Spinach and other leafy greens, oily fish, beef, oranges, dark berries, and almonds are all great foods to naturally keep up with the health of your child’s eyes.

 Have A Regular Eye Doctor

Most parents already have a regular pediatrician for their children and if your child has special needs, the majority of parents usually have that covered, as well. However, unless your child has a special eye condition or needs glasses from a young age, most parents don’t make the effort to have a regular eye doctor. Here is something you might want to keep in mind.

Up to 25% of children entering kindergarten experience eye problems. This can greatly affect how well and how fast they learn. Unidentified eye problems could keep your child from advancing through school as quickly as his/her peers. That, alone, can lead to other problems such as low self-esteem. It is a good idea to go ahead and secure an eye doctor and schedule regular visits.

Protect Those Peepers

As they progress through childhood, there are many children who will try their hand at youth sports. Whether your child wears glasses or not, you should make the effort to make sure their eyes are protected. There are several styles of eye goggles that a child can wear to protect their vision.

You can get them as is, or if your child wears glasses on a regular basis, you can have their prescription built in. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how safe the sport seems, accidents happen and your child’s sight is something he/she will need for the length of his/her life and should be protected as such.

Seeing is not only believing, but observing, learning, and understanding, as well. Take good care of your child’s vision.
