The Effects Of Undiagnosed Vision Problems

Up to 80 percent of learning is visual, because children in school spend so much time reading the white board, studying students workingtextbooks, 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.
