There are many visual skills required for learning that are not typically tested in a routine exam. These skills include eye movement, focusing, eye teaming, and eye-hand coordination. If any of these skills are found to be deficient, a child (or adult) may not learn or work up to potential. Depending on the type of vision problem, vision therapy may be recommended to teach the patient how to use their eyes correctly. Thus removing the roadblocks so that they may learn and work more efficiently.
