Health Tip Newsletter
The beginning of the school year can bring excitement, as well as challenges. Visual problems are common in school-age kids. Screening is a very important way to identify vision problems.
Children five years and older should be screened every year to ensure they don't have any vision problems. To read more and learn when your child should be screened, visit www.healthychildren.org.
The majority of insurances will cover an annual eye exam, but if you need financial help there are programs out there that can help you:
Infantsee will provide a no cost exam for children ages six months to one year.
Your local Lions Club offers vision screenings throughout the year.
For other financial supports please visit
Wyoming Vision Collaborative.
Please visit the WIND website for community supports and to locate a local eye doctor.
