Kids take a lot of tests during their years at school, but they take one of the most important exams before they ever step foot in a school – their kindergarten vision exam. In fact, Illinois law requires that children entering kindergarten and kids enrolling in public, parochial, or private school for the first time undergo a comprehensive eye exam. The purpose of kindergarten eye exams is to give every child the best advantage possible when it comes to learning. Back to School Eye Exams ensure that a child’s vision has not changed over the years.
