Your preschooler should now be developing depth perception and improving his hand-eye co-ordination.

You can help your child develop healthy vision.

  • Reading to your child helps her develop the visual skills she will need to begin reading on her own.
  • Activities like painting, sorting shapes, and assembling pieces like blocks or puzzles help develop healthy vision.
  • Be selective about how much TV your preschooler watches. Prolonged viewing or viewing TV too closely can cause eye strain.
  • One in five preschoolers have vision disorders. Make sure to schedule a full eye examination before your child starts school.
