New ‘Healthy Eyes for Peak Performance’ brochure offers parents and caregivers advice on role of vision in children’s performance
What we see determines what we do; and for children in particular, good eye health and optimal vision are critical factors for better performance at school, at work and at play. To help parents, caregivers and others who have an interest in seeing children perform their best, the AOA Sports Vision Section (SVS) and Safe Kids Worldwide® have teamed up to offer a FREE educational brochure, titled “Healthy Eyes for Peak Performance.”
Both spectacles and contact lenses are good options for those who need vision correction – and Healthy Eyes for Peak Performance sheds new light on a growing body of research about the benefits of contact lens use beyond vision correction alone.
“Studies show that children, some as young as 8 years old, who wear contact lenses feel better about their physical appearance, acceptance among friends, and their ability to play sports than children who wear glasses,” said Dr. Erickson. “This should give parents greater confidence in allowing children to choose the option of contact lens wear when vision correction is required.”
“Healthy Eyes for Peak Performance” is generously supported by Vistakon®, Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.
The brochure is also now available in Spanish.
