Playtime activities and toys can help sharpen your child’s vision skills. Just make sure that the toys you purchase are suitable for your child’s age.
Today, your local eye doctor discusses toys and games that help stimulate and develop vision skills in children.
Toys, Games and Your Child’s Vision
Your child’s vision continues to develop from the moment of birth. Toys, games and playtime activities can aid children’s visual development. Bringing your child for an eye exam on a regular basis is the best way for you to keep track of your child’s visual development. Addressing vision problems promptly helps ensure your child’s performance at school won’t be impacted. Your eye doctor may prescribe glasses or recommend certain activities or toys that can help improve your child’s vision.
The Importance of Playtime
Playing with your children isn’t just a good bonding activity–it can also sharpen their creativity and imagination. Games can encourage the development of their academic and social skills.
A simple game of catch will not only enhance your child’s physical skills but also improve their eye-hand and eye-body coordination. This activity can also help develop their depth perception.
