Interesting Facts about Vision

   A person can have 20/20 eyesight, and yet have a visual problem which does not allow them to get meaning and understanding from what is seen.

   Vision is leamed and continues to develop from birth on into adulthood.

   Vision problems can profoundly affect our lives: our ability to perform tasks, our self-esteem, and our interactions with others. 20/20 is only one small piece of the picture.

   Nearsightedness and other visual conditions are often thought of as being hereditary in nature. However, the environment and how we use our eyes has at least equal, if not more influence on the development of vision.

   Visual problems can have a major influence on conditions classified as Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, and Attention Deficit Disorder.

   Lenses, prisms and vision therapy are effective treatments for strabismus (turned eyes). An evaluation for vision therapy should be done before surgery is considered.

   Vision can often be the basis for poor eye-hand coordination, motion sickness and clumsiness.

   Infants can be fully examined after birth and should be given a comprehensive vision examination by the age of 6 months.
