Up to 80 percent of learning is visual, because children in school spend so much time reading the white board, studying textbooks, and writing. This means that an undiagnosed vision problem puts a major roadblock in the way of a child’s learning. In fact, many children with these problems end up misdiagnosed with a learning disability!
What Are The Symptoms Of An Eye Problem?
Symptoms to watch for in your child include a lazy eye, eyes crossed or turned outward, difficulty completing schoolwork, difficulty with reading comprehension, shortened attention span (particularly for close work), frequent headaches, fidgeting, a habit of covering one eye, and frequent blinking and eye rubbing. If you notice these symptoms and your child haven’t had a comprehensive eye exam, schedule an appointment with us.
