Vision is complex and accounts for 65% of all the pathways to the brain.
However, school screenings often only test visual acuity. Read these staggering statistics.
It is estimated that:
80% of children with a learning disability have an undiagnosed vision problem.
25% of students in grades K-6 have visual problems that are serious enough to impede learning and lead to academic and/or behavioral problems.
Studies show that children with visual perceptual and eye movement difficulties do poorly on standardized testing.
Parents Guide for Detecting Vision Problems
Observations of your child in school and at home are very important to order to determine whether your child has an undiagnosed vision problem.
Children with learning-related vision problems rarely report symptoms. They assume that everyone sees things the same as they do. The following is a list of signs and symptoms that may indicate that your child has a vision problem.
Summer is almost over! As you begin to write your back to school list, remember to include an eye exam! We want your child to begin the new year primed for success with clear vision.
Has your "child" grown taller than you? We understand. College bound students still need reminders from their parents; have they updated their prescriptions? For contact lens wearers, are their backup glasses up- to-date? Call to make your child's appointment today - (734) 525-8170 or
