“The bottom line is that visual problems are common, though not universal, in children who struggle to read; and optometric vision therapy can help address visual problems in children with significant visual dysfunction. A good visual examination is an important part of the workup of every struggling reader.” #dyslexia #convergenceinsufficiency

Hyperopia Decreases Reading Skills by Dr. Edward Fong, Sugar Land Eye Doctor at Bright Eye Care & Vision Development

Eye Doctor Sugar Land Eye Exam Optometrist Back to School FBISD Pediatric Eye Doctor Sugar Land Kid Eye Exam

Students with normal eyesight, healthy eyes and above average reading skills were made to temporarily have hyperopia. These students were then asked to take a standardized reading test as well as a standardized information processing test. Hyperopia is one of the common eyeglass prescriptions.

Reading comprehension scores DECREASED by 21%, or the equivalent of TWO LETTER GRADES, after the students were made to be HYPEROPIC. Information processing, an important cognitive skill needed in word recognition and other learning activities, DECREASED by 25%.

Hyperopia is often missed on vision screenings at schools and pediatricians’ offices. Before your child goes back to school, come in for an eye exam to make sure that he/she does not have hyperopia that can hinder academic performance.

🏫 Back-to-School Announcement:

👓 Hyperopia, one of the three possible eyeglass prescriptions, is associated with lower academic performance.

🔎 Vision screenings do not reliably detect hyperopia according to a study involving twenty-one schools. Another research study discovered that vision screenings miss 40% of required referrals. Many children with academically-significant hyperopia can pass a school or pediatrician vision screening.

👨 Before your child goes back to school, come in for an eye exam to make sure that he/she does not have hyperopia that can hinder academic performance.

ADHD and Vision

ADHD Treatment Sugar Land Vision Therapy Sugar Land Eye Doctor Sugar Land Optometrist Sugar Land

In a national survey involving more than 75,000 children across all fifty states, children WITH VISION PROBLEMS not correctable with glasses or contacts were 2X’s MORE LIKELY to be diagnosed with ADHD than children without vision problems not correctable with glasses or contacts. Interestingly, in another study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, less than 40% of the children MEDICATED for ADHD actually met the formal criteria set forth in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition for diagnosing ADHD. In other words, potentially more than half of those kids who were being medicated did not even have ADHD. No one knows the exact cause of ADHD. Even the diagnosis of ADHD can be murky. Symptoms of ADHD and other conditions, including vision problems, can be strikingly similar. Does a child who is being medicated for ADHD actually need all of that medication, or does he/she have a different condition? That is a question that needs to be looked into further for every child thought to have ADHD.

Does improving vision improve academic performance?

Sugar Land Dyslexia Learning Disability Vision Therapy ADHD ADD Optometrist Eye Doctor Eye Exam

Can improving visual skills improve academic performance? That is the question that a clinical study involving 2nd grade students answered recently. Pre-therapy (before receiving therapy) and post-therapy (after receiving therapy) academic scores were taken. These are some of the findings:

• pre-therapy standardized reading and math scores were significantly HIGHER in the children who DID NOT HAVE VISUAL SKILLS DEFICITS than in the children who suffered from visual skills deficits

• visual skills deficits IMPROVED in the students who received therapy

• standardized math scores and reading scores IMPROVED in students who had received therapy compared to their pre-therapy scores

• post-therapy math scores IMPROVED to the point that there was no statistical difference between children who initially had visual skills deficits versus those who did not have visual skills deficits

• post-therapy standardized reading scores, though significantly improved, were not as high as the children who did not initially have visual skills deficits
