Unraveling Vision-Related Learning Challenges

Vision is more than just seeing clearly; it involves various visual skills, including eye tracking, teaming, focusing, and visual processing. When any of these skills are compromised, it can impact a person's ability to read and learn effectively. Common signs that may indicate a vision-related learning issue include:

  • Skipping Words or Lines: Losing one's place while reading or skipping words and lines may indicate a vision-tracking problem.
  • Headaches or Eye Strain: Frequent headaches or eye strain while reading can be linked to vision problems. These can cause poor stamina for reading and school work.
  • Difficulty Maintaining Attention: Difficulty concentrating during reading or learning tasks may result from visual discomfort or strain.
  • Confusion with Letters: If letters like 'b,' 'd,' 'p,' and 'q' are often confused, it may be due to a visual processing issue.
  • Reading Below Grade Level: If a child or adult consistently reads below their expected grade level, it could be a sign of a vision-related learning challenge.

My husband and I have visited many many eyecare places and Laurie Family Eyecare was the tops. Exam... was professional and accurate. The team of technicians and staff were incredibly helpful and was very accurate with our selections. Prices were so much lower then we have paid elsewhere. When we went to pickup our purchases they were even better then we could have imagined. Doctor Brad is kind, and so professional.
