If your eyes see 20/20, can they still interfere with the ability to learn to read or read to learn? Most definitely they can, and 20/20 is only one very small measurement of the entire visual system. We have five times the sensory input to the brain from the visual system of any other sense that we have. In the vast majority of the states, the school “vision screening” involves looking at an eye chart twenty feet away. How much of the time is spent in a classroom looking twenty feet away when studying?
We are now doing so much more sustained near-point close work, yet the school screening does little to pick up people who are having difficulties seeing near print. Moreover, over 95 percent of people with vision-related learning disabilities see 20/20, so eyesight is not the problem.
Advanced Eyecare & Therapies is dedicated to making sure every patient's vision enhances their daily life. Unlike most optometrists who offer just comprehensive eye exams to patients throughout Spokane to screen for diseases and identify any eye abnormalities, our office is unique.
We help treat adults & children struggling with eye strain or reading problems as a result of an underlying visual problem, such as poor eye coordination & eye teaming skills. A subtle, undetectable vision problem can significantly impact your daily life & enjoyment. Learn more about Vision Therapy
