Description

Introduction: Increasing numbers of eyecare professionals are adopting an integrated approach to healthy sight, called Healthy Sight Counseling, which considers factors beyond visual acuity – such as quality of vision, visual comfort and convenience, and long-term ocular protection and eye health – when making eyewear recommendations. While Healthy Sight Counseling is a concept for all ages, when we consider the healthy sight of children, in many cases the need to address factors beyond simple vision correction become even more important for children than for adults. After all, vision care in childhood can affect healthy sight for a lifetime. When making product recommendations for children, eyecare professionals can do more than prescribe and dispense eyeglasses. They can promote healthy sight by addressing the full range of factors impacting on a child’s healthy sight – visual acuity, quality of vision (particularly light sensitivity and glare), trauma and ultraviolet radiation (UVR) protection and self- and peer-acceptance of spectacle wear – and by taking the time to educate everyone on what is required to provide healthy sight now and to protect and preserve it for the future.
