VISION & LEARNING

Did you know that?

  • Vision is our dominant sense
  • 80% of learning is done through the visual system
  • At least 50% of the brain is dedicated to visual functions

Studies show that over 80% of children that struggle academically have visual skill deficits that go beyond the ability to see 20/20.

There are many visual skills that are involved in learning.

Some of these visual skills are:

Ocular Fixation: The ability to keep the eyes on a stationary target.
Eye Movement Control: The ability to move the eyes accurately.
Eye Teaming: The ability to aim both eyes in the same place at the same time.
Depth Perception: The ability to perceive where objects are in space.
Focusing: The ability to sustain clarity and to shift clarity from distance to near and back again.
Visual Perceptual/Processing Skills: A set of skills used to understand the information that comes in from the eyes.

Treatment Options
  • Glasses may be prescribed to help the individual execute their visual skills better.
  • Vision Therapy may be recommended to improve the individual’s visual skills.
  • School supports. We will make suggestions that your child’s school can implement to support their visual function.

If your child is struggling in school, please give us a call at 518-886-1710 to schedule an evaluation.
