The Importance of Vision to Learning & Warning Signs of Potential VIsion Problems

Vision and how the brain uses visual information are learned skills. According to the American Optometric Association, babies learn to see over a period of time, much like they learn to walk and talk. They are not born with all the visual abilities they need in life. The ability to focus their eyes, move them accurately, and use them together as a team must be learned. Also, they need to learn how to use the visual information the eyes send to their brain in order to understand the world around them and interact with it appropriately.
 
Fast forward to school-aged children – vision takes on a whole new level of importance. In school, children experience greater demands on their eyes and visual system especially while
doing more near task work at their desk and on the computer. Reading, writing, spelling and whiteboard work are among the many tasks students tackle all day long, day after day and more
than 80% of classroom learning occurs visually. Undetected and untreated vision conditions can be barriers to learning and childhood development – in fact, statistically, 20% of school-aged children have undiagnosed or untreated vision problems. Read More!!
