Promoting visual health
More than 80 % of the child's learning goes through the acquisition of information through vision. Parents must therefore ensure that their child has a good vision to learn well, as a child with a visual problem will probably never complain if the defect is birth or acquired in very low age. Because he does not see well and does not know, the child does not function at full capacity in school or in sports. Therefore, he believes that he is not good, he is often rejected by other children, and his self-esteem can be greatly affected.
