Did you know???

  •1 of every 20 children has an undetected vision problem.

•Amblyopia (lazy eye) affects 1 in 50 children. With early  detection and treatment by age 3, a child can expect a 95%  correction rate.  However, if left untreated until age 7, the  correction rate drops to a mere 5%.

  •Color deficiency affects 4 of every 50 boys.

Timely treatment for vision problems can prevent lifelong visual impairment.
