Question

My child reads 20/20 at the pediatrician and at school screenings, but my child says they have burry vision, are they just trying get glasses?

Answer

Most often not. Just because a child sees 20/20 on a chart, it does not mean they have “good vision”. This child most likely has an accommodative or binocular vision disorder.

Question

My child has been told she has dyslexia, could this be related to the eyes?
