Everyone knows the earlier a problem can be identified the more successful will be the outcome. That is why dental and medical exams are required before going to school. Despite this understanding, the visual system is often forgotten. It is the most important system for learning (most researchers indicate 75-80% of learning occurs via the visual system), yet most children do not have a formal visual examination until they are school age. Due to this lack of care, children often adapt to the level of vision they have. Parents often never suspect a problem, even a serious one.
NOT TRUE!! The reality is approximately one child in every classroom suffers from lazy eye and associated learning difficulties such a problems with reading comprehension.
