A Visual Stress Free Calculation
To celebrate ‘World Maths Day’, where students across the globe today will battle it out to discover who is the world’s strongest mathlete. At Turners Vision we believe in making the best calculation for your child’s future by equipping them with the potential to learn, develop and thrive in the classroom and beyond.
Children may not always tell their teacher if they can’t see properly. Poor vision can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn, on their behaviour and development, yet often goes unrecognised by teachers, parents and by the child themselves.
Our Optometrists at Turners have treated a number of previously undetected problems through early diagnosis. The sooner that vision problems are detected – the better the outcome and quality of life for each child.
What is World Maths Day?
World Maths Day is an international celebration of mathematics where millions of students across the world compete in Live Mathletics challenges to determine a global winner, while also participating in fun activities that highlight the wonder of numbers. It’s free, all-inclusive, and open to schools as well as students learning from home. This is where your child will benefit from an eye examination and early diagnosis if you suspect they are suffering from visual stress.
