If you have children between the ages of 3 and 6, be aware of these warning signs of possible preschool vision problems:

  • Consistently sitting too close to the TV or holding a book too close
  • Squinting
  • Tilting the head to see better
  • Frequently rubbing eyes, even when not sleepy
  • Shielding eyes or other signs of sensitivity to light
  • Excessive tearing and watery eyes
  • Closing one eye to read, watch TV or see better
  • Avoiding activities that require near vision, such as coloring or reading, or distance vision, such as playing ball or tag
  • Complaining of headaches or tired eyes

Therefore, D is the correct answer! Schedule an appointment with your optometrist or ophthalmologist if your preschooler exhibits any of these signs.
