My 6 years old daughter cannot see the object about 20 fit distance

Sir, my daughter (6 yrs old) has a problem on eye sight. She can not feel comfort to see the object about 20 fit distance (for example to see black board from the last bench in a classroom of kinder garten school). She has tendency to see the object or words in book with very closer distance (near to her). Would you please suggest me or advice me which specialist of doctors I have to consult?
