A child needs good vision to succeed in school. Their eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. When vision is not functioning properly, education and participation in sports suffer.

 

As children progress in school the size of print in textbooks becomes smaller and the amount of time spent reading and studying increases significantly.

 

When visual skills are not developed learning is difficult and stressful, and children will typically:

• Avoid reading and other near visual work.

• Attempt to do the work with a lowered level of comprehension or efficiency.

• Experience discomfort, fatigue and a short attention span.

• Exhibit specific behaviors of hyperactivity and distractibility.

Learning Disability or just Poor Vision?

80% of the learning a child does occurs through the eyes.

Undetected vision problems can show the same symptoms commonly attributed to ADHD. Due to these similarities, some children may be mislabeled as having ADHD when, in fact, they have an undetected vision problem.

 

Because vision may change frequently during the school years, regular eye and vision care is important.
