August and September are busy months for us and many of our new patients are students who discover they are having trouble seeing the white board. If your child needs an eye exam for the first time, they may feel a little anxious or excited or both. To help them understand what will happen at the eye doctor, we recommend downloading and reading this free e-book from The EyeSolution called Howard and the Amazing Eye Exam. Howard is a hedgehog who goes to the optometrist and learns how his eyes work and how fun a visit to the eye doctor can be.

We encourage you to share this book with your child or grandchild and let us know if it was helpful. Enjoy the rest of your summer and don’t forget to schedule your child’s back-to-school eye exam!
