Vision & Learning

Did you know that success in the classroom begins with healthy vision?  Because more than 80% of a child’s learning happens through vision, an undiagnosed vision problem could impact learning and performance, reading, grades and self-esteem.  If you find that your child is struggling with reading and learning, there may be vision related learning problems contributing.   Please call our office to schedule your child’s thorough exam and evaluation.
