Is your child farsighted?

Researchers at Ohio State have found that children who are farsighted lose ground in reading before even starting first grade.

Four to 14% of preschoolers are farsighted to some degree.

Some doctors, though, don't like to prescribe glasses for these little ones, saying they will outgrow it.

The National Eye Institute supported this study but wants to see more research before recommending glasses for farsighted preschoolers.

For one thing, they want to know which kids will benefit from glasses and which will not.

Until then--discuss with your doctor?
