Your child may have 20/20 eyesight but 0/0 vision. The difference is critical. Eyesight is merely the basic ability to see. Vision is the ability to identify, interpret, comprehend, and act on what is seen. Routine vision tests performed by school personnel or by most eye care professionals measure eyesight. They do not include the kinds of testing that can find visually related learning problems.

Our VIP (Vision Improvement Program) can diagnose and successfully treat vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:

  • Unable to sit still, cannot stay on task for any length of time.
  • Very clumsy; poor eye-hand coordination.
  • Does written work very slowly; often fails to complete a task.
  • Has difficulty copying visual material; constantly looks up and down.
  • Moves entire head instead of eyes when reading.
  • Reversals - for example confusing the words "was and saw" or letters "b and d".
  • Is disorganized and frustrated when studying visual information.
  • Makes frequent, "careless" errors.
  • Difficulty understanding and remembering what they read.

If your son or daughter has one or more of these behaviors, call (904) 992-9991 today to schedule an evaluation for vision-related learning problems. It could be the most important phone call you will make during his/her school years.
