In the course of my professional life I have come across two extreme cases where one child had got as far as seeing an educational psychologist and the other was in “Special Needs” because of poor reading- and neither could have read because they couldn’t see! No-one had thought to check! Children often don’t realise that they are unable to focus properly on what they’re reading because of an eye problem and just avoid close work as much as possible- sometimes this even contributes to behavioural problems. We make eye examinations fun for children and if glasses are needed, have a great range of children’s specs. Often all that is needed is some advice, or occasionally eye exercises.
