Children's Vision

It is not always easy to detect if a child has a vision problem, in fact 1 in 20 preschoolers and 1 in 4 school-aged children has a vision problem. Sometimes children have trouble seeing and don’t even realize they are seeing the world differently than others. Healthy vision is important for learning and success in school. For most children, 80% of learning happens visually. Vision problems can make it hard for children to read and learn, and unfortunately, many fall behind in school or show behavioral problems.
