About 80% of learning in a child's
first 12 years comes through the
eyes. Some children are labeled
"learning disabled" or
"troubled-makers," when all they
need is an eye exam and appropriate
vision correction. Good vision is
fundamental to reading; it is vital
to seeing such learning tools as the
chalkboard, visual aids and videos.
In short, good vision is as
essential to learning as the ABC's.
Unlike a comprehensive exam, a
simple vision screening, that only
identifies 5% of vision problems in
children. While these vision
screenings are useful for offering
an early indication of problems
relating to distance eyesight, they
miss other critical vision
deficiencies that can impact a
child's eye health, development and
school and learning performance.
However, a comprehensive eye exam
measures a number of visual skills
that are critical to a child's
healthy vision, such as using both
eyes as a team, the ability of the
eyes to focus property when reading
a book, or viewing a computer, and
the ability of the eyes to move
properly when reading across a page
The basic vision skills needed for
school use are:
Near vision - The ability to
see clearly and comfortably at 10-13
Distance Vision - The ability
to see clearly and comfortably
beyond arm's reach.
Binocular coordination - The
ability to use both eyes together.
Eye movement skills - The
ability to aim the eyes accurately,
move them smoothly across a page and
shift them quickly and accurately
from one object to another.
Focusing skills - The ability
to keep both eyes accurately focused
at the proper distances to see
clearly and to change focus quickly.
Peripheral awareness - The
ability to be aware of things
located to the side while looking
Eye/hand coordination - The
ability to use the eyes and hands
