Could it be my child's eyes? Maybe. Your child might be suffering from Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD). With BVD, one eye sees an image differently (vertically, horizontally or both) than the other eye. The body corrects this by overusing and severely straining the eye muscles, causing the symptoms of BVD which include headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, difficulty with reading, learning and concentrating, and even anxiety in large spaces like malls.

Vision is a critical component to learning and most tasks of daily life. Children with special needs have vision problems that often go unrecognized and therefore, undiagnosed. Take time to make sure they see their best.
