Children and adults with dyslexia usually have healthy eyes and sharp eyesight. However, a substantial number of individuals with dyslexia have other visual problems. Depending on its severity, a learning-related vision problem can sometimes be misidentified as dyslexia because there are similarities. However, it is more common that children with dyslexia also have a visual component that is contributing to their difficulties.

When a child struggles with reading and learning it is important to first rule out the possibility of a vision problem. If a vision problem exists, treatment may involve glasses, optometric vision therapy, or both. Optometric vision therapy treats vision problems that can interfere with learning to read, or reading to learn. Once the vision problem is treated successfully, tutoring and other special services can become more effective.

If you are concerned about learning-related vision problem please given us a call to schedule an evaluation.

Testimonial

  • I brought my son in after a few years of watching him struggle in school and lose self confidence. We had tried all different things at school and he was getting extra help in all subjects. My son was referred to see an occupational therapist who noticed that it could be a vision issue. I was recommended to this office and after his consult we began therapy. I can't express how thankful we are for the therapy. Within weeks of starting we saw a difference and I have a son who is now successful in school (made the honor roll) and has gained his self confidence. The difference in his mood and attitude is unbelievable, he has become more pleasant to be around. - LS
