Description

Vision is our dominant sense for learning, but not all eye doctors provide in-depth testing for developmental and functional vision problems and the relevant treatment, such as vision therapy.  Developmental Optometrists emphasize an expanded functional, developmental and behavior approach to vision evaluations. Their approach to vision care is directed at correcting existing vision problems and enhancing visual abilities.  20/20 is NOT perfect vision.  In fact, the 20/20 test does not evaluate many other important measures of normal vision, including: eye focusing, eye teaming and coordination, eye movement, and visual perceptual skills.  Once you have an understanding of these basic skills, and their impact on development, you’ll be able to better identify those patients and students whose academic and therapeutic progress has been delayed as a result, and offer potential solutions to these roadblocks.
