    Learning Related Vision Problems

Studies have shown that vision is a contributing factor to a student's ability to learn. It has been estimated that 75-90% of all classroom learning is achieved through vision. If there are any problems with a student's vision, the student will probably experience difficulty with learning.

At Offen Eye Associates, we are trained to detect and correct vision problems which can deter the learning process.

 

We check for problems such as:

  • Lazy Eye or Amblyopia- A condition where one eye is used less than the other.
  • Strabismus - A condition where both eyes are not aligned simultaneously.
  • Focusing or Accommodative Disorder- A condition where the patient cannot easily focus between near and far objects. - A condition where the patient is unable to keep his or her place when reading.
  • Eye Tracking or Ocular Motor Dysfunction- A condition where the patient is unable to keep his or her place when reading.
  • Eye Coordination or Binocular Vision Dysfunction - A neuromuscular imbalance of the eyes that creates eye strain when doing computer work or reading.
  • - A condition where one eye is used less than the other. - A condition where both eyes are not aligned simultaneously.

These conditions can often be treated with Optometric Vision Therapy, or prescription reading glasses with prism lenses.
