Tips on how to aim for an 'A' with an optical test.
Many parents and students simply don't think about poor vision being a significant barrier to learning. Simple tasks such as reading the whiteboard, books or long hours staring at a computer screen may cause headaches, squinting or words to become blurry, making studying hard.
"Having frequent eye tests will ensure that students are able to perform at their best and reach their full potential whether they're at home or in the classroom," said Grant Fisher, National Eyecare Director at Budget Eyewear.
Grant Fisher has pulled together some top tips to ensure that all students' eyes are as sharp as a pencil:
Always study in a well lit room. Too much or too little light can cause you to squint or strain. So, avoid working in darkness in front of a bright computer screen, and always read and write with a light positioned behind you.
Monitor your vision. Be aware of how long you are spending on one task, especially if you are working on the computer or reading. Long term exposure to the computer could cause dry eyes from reduced blinking and even induce myopia (short-sightedness) in some students.
Give your eyes a break. Relax your eyes by taking a few seconds to focus on an object in your line of vision beyond your computer or text book.
Eat for your eyes. Snack on tasty, nutritious treats such as apricots, oranges, strawberries, carrots, as well as nuts and seeds such as almonds, peanuts and pumpkin seeds. Eating food that is rich in vitamins A, C, E, selenium and zinc have been shown to play an important role in maintaining eye health.
Watch out for regular headaches, frequently sore, tired or bloodshot eyes. These are not just symptoms of working too hard - more than likely your eyes are trying to tell you something! If you're experiencing these symptoms it's worthwhile booking an appointment to see your local optometrist.
Check your child's eyes regularly. Medicare covers an eye test every two years and in some instances more frequently so take the time to check out your eye health.
