Pre-K Eye Exam Day

The doctors and staff at Uptown Eye Care have partnered with the Minnesota Optometric Association to bring you Pre-K Eye Exam Day. The MOA Children’s Vision Committee, with the help of a federal (HEHP) grant, are supporting an effort to educate families about children’s eye health. To kick off Children’s Vision and Learning month and as part of the MOA’s Good Sight For Kindergarten, August 1st is Pre-K Eye Exam Day.

Pre-K Eye Exam Day

The goal of Pre-K Eye Exam Day is to let families know that good vision is essential to learning, and every child needs to have a comprehensive eye exam before entering school. At least 25% of all school-age children have vision problems that impair their performance in school. This could be as high as 60% because vision problems can be confused with other disorders, and students may unnecessarily receive special education or even be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.

On August 1st Dr. Mary Gregory will be offering no cost eye exams to 4 and 5 year olds that will be entering kindergarten this fall. This is a great opportunity to make sure your children are ready for learning with good sight.

Spaces are limited, so please call our office at 763-271-2020 to schedule your child’s Pre-K eye exam today.
