Reading and Vision Problems

reading2

If your child dislikes reading, they may have an underlying visual issue.

Relevant visual skills required for reading include eye-tracking, eye-teaming, convergence, accommodation, and visual fixation — all skills that are assessed during a functional visual evaluation.

In simpler terms, both eyes need to work together, move at the same pace, and provide a single and clear image for the brain to interpret.

Imagine trying to read when the words are blurry or even doubled?

Vision therapy is a customized program that can improve these visual skills by training the brain to improve these visual skills —thereby significantly improving the child’s reading, learning, and performance at school.
