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
VISION PROBLEMS MAY INCLUDE:
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.
