Children often don’t realize they have a vision problem because they think everyone sees the same way they do. In fact, approximately 30 million children in the U.S. have undetected vision problems, which may interfere with their learning development.1

The fact is that children may be more responsive to treatment when a vision problem is detected early.2 As a family of brands whose mission is to help you find the best care for your eyes, The Eye Solution teamed up with
Dr. Catherine McDaniel to create an eBook that discussed the importance of early childhood eye exams.

Catherine McDaniel OD, MS, FAAO

As an Associate Professor of Clinical Optometry and the Chief of the Pediatric Optometry Clinic at The Ohio State University, eye health is extremely important to
Dr. McDaniel. But, as a mother of two, she is also intimately aware of the importance of eye exams for children. At her 9-month-old daughter’s routine infant eye exam, it was discovered that she needed glasses to correct her vision. Because of this early intervention, she was able to help protect her daughter against potential vision loss. She hopes that by reading "Howard and the Amazing Eye Exam", parents will be inspired to schedule an eye exam for their own children.
