Why is regular vision screening so important, especially for children? Good vision is key to a child’s physical development, success in school and overall well-being. The vision system is not fully formed in babies and young children, and equal input from both eyes is necessary for the brain’s vision centers to develop normally. If a young child’s eyes cannot send clear images to the brain, his or her vision may become limited in ways that cannot be corrected later in life. But if problems are detected early, it is usually possible to treat them effectively.

Families qualifying for our parenting service participate in interactive sessions in which they learn appropriate and clear communication, anger management, and conflict resolution skills. Additionally, caregivers will be provided with referral support in connecting to appropriate community resources for job skill training, housing, social services, nutrition, healthcare services, etc. Caregivers participating in services will learn how to effectively acknowledge and provide support for their child’s feelings.

MEDARVA Healthcare has spent the past seven years investing in and conducting early childhood vision and hearing screenings.
