Did you know?

1 in 4 children has an uncorrected vision problem.  1 in 10 children has a vision problem significant enough to impact learning. Vision skills are more than 20/20 and assist in the learning process:

  • Recognition: the ability to tell the difference between letters

  • Comprehension: to picture in our mind what is happening

  • Retention: to be able to remember and retail details


  • Short attention span

  • Frequent eye rubbing or blinking

  • Avoiding reading or other close work

  • Holding reading material close to the face

  • Tilting head, or tilting paper to read

  • Difficulty remembering and losing place when reading

  • Double vision and headache

What's the difference between a vision screening and an eye exam?

A lot. A school vision screening will only check for a distance prescription and is not a comprehensive eye exam. Your student should receive a comprehensive eye exam every year to check for vision problems.
