When we are born, vision is still "under development". During our early years, we learn how to move our eyes; how to focus our eyes; and how to move our eyes as a team. Good (or bad) visual habits are learned as we grow and explore.
Eyes have difficulty "shifting focus" from far to near and back again. Oftentimes, the child will have trouble copying form the board or will complain about eye strain or headaches when reading.
Eyes have difficulty following a moving object or quickly shifting from one point to another. This child frequently loses his or her place when reading or frequently re-reads a paragraph.
Eye Teaming Dysfunction:
Both eyes must work together to see a single image. If both eyes are not working together, you will see double. In some cases, the brain will ignore one eye to avoid double vision. This skill is also critical to depth perception (3D Vision). This child may be clumsy or misjudge distances. They may also complain of words running together or moving on the page.
Amblyopia (Lazy Eye):
Did you know that 4 out of 100 children have Lazy Eye? This is when one eye does not see as clearly as the other. These kids will often tilt their heads or cover the lazy eye when reading. It is NEVER too late to treat Amblyopia.
Strabismus (Eye Turn):
One eye occasionally or constantly turns in or out. About 1 out of 25 children has strabismus.
