Eye exam reminder on students

THE Optometrists Association of Australia is reminding parents to have their children's eyes checked before the school year starts. 

Eye disorders are one of the most common problems among children. Common signs of vision problems include squinting, tilting the head, rubbing the eyes, holding books too close and skipping lines while reading. 

Chief executive Terri Smith said: "Children often assume that how they see is normal and vision problems may not always be obvious, so it's important to make sure an eye examination is checked off the 'back to school' list."
