Early identification of a child’s vision problem is crucial.
Sixty per cent of children who are ‘problem learners’ have been found to suffer from undetected vision problems. Undetected vision problems are estimated to affect approximately one in four Australian children – or 600,000 nationally – which may contribute to potential learning difficulties in reading, writing, viewing a whiteboard, computer use and other classroom activities.
