Dr. Schuster and staff help kids see clearly
- Posted on: Mar 2 2016
Tower Clock Eye Center’s Amanda Schuster, OD, and staff recently volunteered at The Children’s Museum of Green Bay to give free eye screenings to kids. The exams were part of the museum’s E.A.T. program that promotes healthy living and eating.
Dr. Schuster screened dozens of kids for eye problems. Studies have shown that vision problems can hinder learning and development, and she stressed the need for kids to have their eyes examined, “Children labeled slow learners or those thought to have ADD or ADHD often just have undetected vision problems. We’re here to make a difference for those kids,” she said.
Schuster and volunteers from Tower Clock Eye Center offer these services at The Children’s Museum of Green Bay several times a year, and everyone enjoys helping kids in the community, “It’s fun and worth our time to provided these screenings, even if we help just one kid,“ Schuster added.
