Teachers and parents alike are concerned about the social, emotional, health and academic impact the pandemic has had on children. Social distancing requirements, loss of income within families, and disruptions related to accessing health care all are recognized as impacting children’s overall well-being.

This webinar will provide key information about the links between vision and learning and how the pandemic and distance learning may have impacted children’s eye health. Our expert eye health panelists will share information regarding digital eyestrain and other conditions brought on by the increased use of digital devices for online learning and what parents and teachers can do to help.
