Undetected or untreated vision problems can hinder a child’s ability to perform to their full potential in school. In fact, many eye diseases can impair vision or lead to vision loss. Since vision is closely linked to the learning process, children who have trouble seeing will often have trouble with their schoolwork. Many times, children will not complain of vision problems simply because they don’t know what “normal” vision looks like. This is why it is important for people of all ages to have their eyes checked regularly.
