Success in learning requires a child’s eyes, brain, and body to all work together as a team. When they don’t, even someone with 20/20 eyesight can have difficulty gathering, processing, and responding to visual information. As children progress in school, they face increasing demands on their visual system. The size of print in schoolbooks becomes smaller while the amount of time spent reading and studying increases significantly. This elevation of classwork and homework places substantial demands on the child’s eyes. We have found that, unlike many other kinds of ailments, children will rarely complain of vision problems. A child suffering from visual impairments may never know that their perception differs from those around them. This makes it particularly important to increase the awareness of developmental vision problems, and help parents to understand what to look for if they suspect their child may have problems with his or her vision.
