It's National Eye Exam Month and it's important to make sure your students' eyes are healthy before they start school.

Doctors recommend getting an eye exam early every year. It's important to catch eye issues early, especially for kindergartners.

With many students learning virtually, digital eye strain is expected to become an even bigger problem. Doctors say after every 20 minutes of screen time, look away from the screen for at least 20 feet for 20 seconds.

It's also important to try and get your kids away from screens after school.
