The important relationship between vision and school performance
The way the brain and eyes work together (vision) has a huge impact on the learning process for both children and adults. In fact, there are studies that state that 30% of the cases of school failure are related to undiagnosed vision disorders.
Imagine sitting in a classroom taking notes and struggling with a focus issue that either doesn't allow you to switch focus from near to far and vice versa or isn't fast enough.

Imagine reading a paragraph and looking at the letters or words while trying to understand what you are reading. In any of these cases, it is more than likely that the person with the vision problem will see 20/20 with or without corrective lenses. Most school assessments only check visual acuity and do not test visual skills, including tracking, focusing, teamwork, or perceptual skills. Many children and adults don't realize that their struggles in the classroom and/or workplace are not tied in any way to intelligence or how hard they try, but rather that they are unable to visually process information. that is presented to them.
Not knowing the cause of problems in the classroom, and later in adult life skills, can have a detrimental effect on self-esteem and behavior. Many children begin to get frustrated, experience restlessness, struggle to maintain focus, and then begin to be labeled as trouble in the classroom. With proper diagnosis and treatment, reading levels improve significantly, comprehension increases, and even sports performance can improve. It is important to be aware of the symptoms of visual disturbances in both children and adults.
