Visual Issues in Education

Some parents might think that dyslexia and attention deficit disorder (ADD) are caused by an eye disorder or condition, but this is usually not the case. However, it is true that for your child to learn well in school they need to be able to see well and in focus.

Columbia Pediatric Ophthalmologists are experts in determining if your child has an eye or eye muscle condition that may affect their school performance. This will help show if education problems may be helped with treatment of the eye condition or if treatment educationally (for dyslexia) or behaviorally (for attention deficit) would be more effective.
