Conducting A Specialized Eye Exam
The Importance Of Comprehensive Pediatric Eye Examinations For School Children
Regular vision exams are important for children throughout the school-age years, even for those exhibiting 20/20 vision. This is because a child can exhibit 20/20 vision but still have an undetected vision issue that may be interfering with their ability to learn. It is particularly important and highly recommended that any child who is considered as having a Reading or Language Skill Disability, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a learning disability (LD) or Dyslexia, to have a thorough eye examination and Visual Perceptual / Developmental Vision Evaluation.
