Pediatric optometrists who specialize in learning-related vision problems are called "developmental" optometrists. They have extensive training in dealing with visual systems under stress, such as the demanding up-close work and small print required for school performance. They also have strong skills in correcting lazy eyes and crossed eyes so that the two eyes work together as a team.
