5yr olds eyes....

My 5yr old is in kindergarten, she has been complaining of headachs lately so I talked to her nurse who did her screening and they said her vision is 20/30 which is passing for Kindergarten, but not for driving (I know I know shes 5) do you think I should take her to a professional to have her eyes checked?
Thanks for the Advise

  • It would not hurt and it would ease your mind, so yes do it.

  • yes! My kindergartener got headaches and he ended up getting reading glasses. His optomologist said he will most likely need thm full-time down the line.

  • I would take her. It won't hurt and if she needs glasses it should help with the head aches. I know I started getting headaches and when I got my glasses they pretty much went away.

    Good Luck!
