How to Identify a Vision Problem

Children should be referred for a comprehensive eye exam whenever visual symptoms are noticed or if they are not achieving their potential. Many of these vision problems will not be detected during a school vision screening or limited vision assessment as part of a school physical or routine pediatric health evaluation.

It is also helpful for you and your child’s teacher(s) to review the list of symptoms(under the vision therapy tab) to gain a full understanding of possible conditions your child may be experiencing.

The Vision Performance Center strives to provide unsurpassed vision therapy care to all of our patients in Atlanta, GA.
