Vision Exams For Kids!! (Video)

Betsy Cowand, a kindergarten teacher from West Shore Elementary in Tampa, Florida & Dr. Larry Lampert, a developmental optometrist from Boca Raton, Florida are interviewed  by Danielle Knox (Lifetime TV) about children's vision & eye exams.

Over 80% of learning comes through the visual system.  Almost 25% of children have a undetected vision problem that affects learning.  Vision screenings at school and the pediatrician's office are missing visual skill checks with areas of processing that are crucial for learning.
