Learning disability or vision problem?  Some very-treatable vision disorders are often diagnosed as ADHD, ADD or dyslexia.  According to All About Vision, 80 percent of everything children learn comes through their eyes, so not being able to see the board can be a huge problem when trying to learn, especially at a young age.

Indiana eye doctors say some students are acting out because they can’t see what is going on and are in turn becoming diagnosed with ADHD or ADD.  The troubles aren’t only in the classroom; frustrations on the field could be a result of poor vision.  Setbacks with sports like poor hand-eye-coordination could be fixed with simple glasses and contacts.  (Don’t worry, contacts are for all ages!)

And vision issues aren’t the only problems: problems with coordinating eye movements, following straight lines and depth perceptions can also affect a child’s learning experience.  Good news!  A simple vision exam can help your child excel in the classroom.
