In a clinical study comparing the visual skills in students with developmental dyslexia versus those in normal readers, the authors concluded that “deficits in visual function [were] far more prevalent in school-aged children with developmental dyslexia than in typically developing readers”. Nearly 80% of children with developmental dyslexia suffered from visual skills dysfunction.

If your child is struggling with reading, it is imperative that you have his/her visual skills thoroughly evaluated. A yearly eye exam will not investigate these areas of the visual system. We specialize in visual skills that affect reading, writing and learning.

Students who experience the following vision-related symptoms were shown to have more academic difficulties according to a clinical study involving elementary school children:

• Headaches with near work
• Words running together when reading
• Burning, itching or watery eyes
• Skipping/repeating lines when reading
• Head tilt/closing one eye when reading
• Difficulty copying from the board
• Avoiding near work/reading
• Omitting small words when reading
• Writing uphill or downhill
• Misaligning digits in columns
• Holds reading materials too closely
• Trouble maintaining attention when reading
• Difficulty completing assignments on time
• Always says, “I can’t” even before trying
• Clumsy, knocks things over
• Loses things/belongings
• Forgetful/poor memory

If a child is struggling at school and he/she is experiencing any of the above, then a visual skills evaluation would be recommended. A routine eye exam would not uncover undiagnosed visual skills problems that may be contributing to that child’s academic struggles.

MORE SCREEN TIME and KIDS. Increased screen time at a young age has been associated with decreased gross motor skills development. One study reported that TV viewing at 29 months of age was associated with subsequent lower gross motor skills development at 65 months of age.

In addition, high screen time in early adolescence has been associated with more headaches and backaches. Furthermore, physical activity does not appear to improve those physical maladies. The effects of screen time on physical problems is believed to be cumulative. For more information and to have your child’s vision evaluated, contact us at http://www.brighteyeandvision.com
