School-Age Vision

A good education for your child starts with good schools, good teachers and good vision. Your child's eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. When his or her vision is not functioning properly, learning and participation in recreational activities will also suffer.

The basic vision skills needed for school use are:
Near Vision. The ability to see clearly and comfortably at 10-13 inches.
Distance Vision. The ability to see clearly and comfortably beyond arm's reach.
Binocular coordination. The ability to use both eyes together.
Eye movement skills. The ability to aim the eyes accurately, move smoothly and shift them quickly and accurately.
Focusing skills. The ability to keep both eyes accurately focused at the proper distance and to change focus quickly.
Peripheral awareness. The ability to be aware of things located to the side while looking straight ahead.
Eye/hand coordination. The ability to use the eyes and hands together.

If any of these or other vision skills are lacking or do not function properly, your child will have to work harder. This can lead to headaches, fatigue and other eyestrain problems. As a parent, be alert for symptoms that may indicate your child has a vision or visual processing problem.

Symptoms to watch for that may indicate your child has a vision or visual processing problem!
It is important to let us know if you notice your child frequently:
Loses their place while reading
Avoids close work
Holds reading material closer than normal
Tends to rub their eyes
Has headaches
Turns or tilts head to use one eye only 
Makes frequent reversals when reading or writing
Uses finger to maintain place when reading
Omits or confuses small words when reading
Consistently performs below potential
Since vision changes can occur without you or your child noticing them, your child should visit the eye doctor at least once a year. If needed, the doctor can prescribe treatment including eyeglasses, contact lenses or vision therapy.
