Did You Know?

  • 80% of learning is visual but only 14% of kids get eye exams.
  • Vision is our dominant sense and our primary source for gathering information in learning. Research has demonstrated Vision Therapy to be an effective, evidence-based treatment for disorders of binocular function. The Convergence Insufficiency Treatment Trial study through the Mayo Clinic shows office Vision Therapy to be 75-90% successful.
  • If your child is struggling in school and not reaching his full learning potential, the problem may be undetected visual deficiencies. Visual skill deficiencies are the most common undiagnosed cause of poor academic results.
  • Many children with convergence insufficiency, an easily treated eye condition that affects reading, are often misdiagnosed with a learning disability, dyslexia, or ADD/ADHD.
  • Eye problems can cause fatigue, poor school performance, headaches, or avoiding near work.
  • 5% of adults have permanent vision loss from lazy eye, a condition totally treatable if caught in early childhood.
  • Contact lenses can safely be used by pediatric patients.
  • Every child deserves a good eye exam in an eye doctor's office to maximize their potential in the classroom.
  • School screenings are NOT eye exams and miss 60% of vision disorders.
  • Children should be seen in infancy, at age 3, age 5, then every 2 years thereafter.
