The symptoms of many vision problems can mimic disorders such as dyslexia and ADHD.

Vision-related learning problems affect 1 in 4 school-age children, yet knowledge about these types of vision problems is scant.

There is a difference between vision and eyesight, and there’s more to vision than 20/20.

Wendy learned these facts when she found out that her own daughter fell below grade level in written expression.

It turns out that she had a previously undiagnosed condition that caused her to see double, which made it difficult for her to track lines of print on a page.
