Early childhood screening can prevent thousands of children from unnecessarily losing their sight or hearing. This in turn helps eliminate the needless social, emotional, and educational problems that are common in children with vision or hearing problems. These regular exams are particularly important during the formative years when a child is learning at a rapid pace. Even before entering schol, it is critical that the child have the best possible vision and hearing.

Screening conducted by trained vision and hearing technicians should be a regular part of a young child's care. It is important to remember, however, that it should not be considered a substitute for regular examinations by a physician.

Call Judy at (618)244-7134 to find out how and where you can have your child screened.
