Vision problems that are undetected and untreated can affect the child’s ability to learn in school. Good vision is vital for school-aged children to excel.

Here are symptoms of learning-related vision problems:

  • Rubbing eyes frequently, headaches and eyestrain.
  • Blurred vision or double vision
  • Crossed eyes or if the eyes move independently of each other.
  • Holding a book very closely to read.
  • Short attention span during visual tasks.
  • Using one eye by tilting the head or covering the other eye to see clearly.
  • Losing their place while reading or using a finger to stay in line.
  • Poor eye-hand coordination.
  • Difficulty remembering, identifying, or reproducing shapes.

If you notice any of these symptoms in your child, then they may have learning-related vision problems. An eye exam is needed to diagnose accordingly and get treatment as soon as possible.
