VISION IS MORE THAN “20/20”

Optometrists find that many children with learning-related vision problems have 20/20 distance eyesight, but have great difficulty doing vision tasks less than arm’s length away. Most school screenings test just the sharpness of distance eyesight, so many vision problems that affect learning go undetected. But parents and teachers can learn to spot learning-related visual problems. Some of these signs are on the CHECKLIST to be posted tomorrow. If a child is continually exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to arrange for a vision evaluation.
