Visual processing and learning disorders.

Visual processing and learning disorders

....Ophthalmologists ... must realize that with normal 20/20 eyesight interpretation of what is seen may be dysfunctional because of faulty brain processing of that which is seen by normal eyes. Abnormal Visual Processing ... disorders eventually lead directly to learning disorders in children and young adults.....Recent neuropsychology discoveries have helped in the prevention, evaluation and treatment of children with visual processing and learning disorders. Quality-of-life and educational efficiency therefore can be improved.....

Comments: There! It is now officially recognized in an ophthalmology journal. 20/20 vision is not enough. How we process what we see affects learning! We can improve how we process what we see with Optometric Vision Therapy. If we improve visual information processing does learning improve? Just ask any functional optometrist! For more information go to the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, Optometric Extension Program Foundation...and if you live in the Chicago-land area contact me at Lyons Family Eye Care or at the Illinois College of Optometry/Illinois Eye Institute.
