Get Ready For Back To School!


It is not uncommon for parents to believe they would know if their child has a vision problem; however, these issues can be hard to spot particularly if there is a problem in only one of the eyes.

If your child is not seeing properly, it can impact their ability to learn.

  • 80 % of learning is visual for a child.
  • 1 in 4 school-aged children has a vision problem.
  • Children with vision problems are often misdiagnosed as having learning or behavioural disabilities.
  • Children are often unaware they have a vision issue as they believe what they are seeing is normal.
  • The earlier an eye health or visual problem is identified, the more likely it can be corrected.*
