Vision problems can contribute to struggles in learning and can co-exist with learning disabilities. Finding the causes at the root of the learning obstacle will allow for proper treatment.
Don’t let your vision impede your learning ability – a comprehensive assessment with one of our optometrists will help pinpoint perceptual and functional issues that affect learning.
Lazy eye, or amblyopia, is an early childhood condition in which a child’s eyesight does not develop as it should in one eye. The term “lazy eye” is misleading because the condition is caused by a developmental problem in the nerve connecting the eye to the brain, not a problem in the eye itself.
Symptoms include blurred vision and poor depth perception, and can be caused by a number of factors, including a muscle imbalance or eye disease. Early treatment is effective and encouraged to prevent poor visual habits.
Holding our head up for the first time, rolling over, crawling and creeping, walking, skipping – all of these require the basic building blocks that began with primitive reflexes.
Primitive reflexes help us move through our spatial world as we develop through early childhood stages of life. When primitive reflexes haven’t integrated within the appropriate time frame, it is important to revisit the missing developmental stages. These therapies will help rebuild the foundation and create new neural pathways, making it possible to retrain the brain, our control center for these reflexes.
