Good vision is essential to the ability to read and to learn because almost 80% of all learning done in school is visual. Many vision problems can go undetected because although a child may have 20/20 eyesight and healthy eyes, other important visual skills like tracking, eye teaming, and focusing may not have developed properly which creates a roadblock to academic success. These hidden vision problems need to be detected and treated before they interfere with learning and reading.
A comprehensive eye exam looks for more than the standard 20/20 vision. Dr. Cummings can identify any deficiencies in visual skills necessary for learning, such as; eye teaming, tracking, and accommodation (switching focus from near to far).
