I'm not sure if it is just because he likes to be close, but DS likes to watch TV really close to the screen.
In school he does better the closer he is to the teacher (but I think that is a behavioral/attention issue)
Are there indicators of eyesight issues? neither DH or I wear glasses so I have no experience in this department.
No harm in getting eyesight tested. It should be done every year just for eye health reasons. We started taking our kids once a year once they turned 3.
My husband needed glasses in kindergarten so our kids started getting eye exams between two and three. Right now they are both looking good and only need to come in every two years because they aren't showing signs of any issues. But until kindergarten, we did every year. Always best to be safe!!!
It was only ten dollars copay to get DS tested at the optometrist so we got him tested when I had mine done. I figure if we are paying for the insurance might as well use it.
My DD1 complained of headaches and blurriness. She has to wear glasses. Take him in to be tested.
