Current research shows that about 20% of school-aged children have undetected vision problems which are hindering their school performance. Many of these children have passed their school's vision screening, which is only designed to check children's distance vision as measured by the 20/20 line on the eye chart. You MUST have the 3 PILLARS of vision checked to know if you have a vision related learning problem.
At least 50% of kids with learning problems have vision problems contributing to their struggles.
Children who are struggling with undetected vision problems often fail to progress well in school. The following checklist shows common symptoms children with hidden vision problems can exhibit. The checklist is an excellent screening tool to evaluate if your child is at-risk for vision-based learning or attention problems. A score above 20 is a fail, and an exam with a pediatric optometrist is recommended. The first step in helping your child is correctly identifying the problem!
