vision and learning article
 

There is controversy over the exact relationship between vision and learning. For example there is a negative correlation between distance refractive error and reading ability. Myopic or nearsighted children who cannot see clearly at a distance without glasses are more commonly good readers. Children who spend tremendous amounts of time reading become nearsighted. Before Alaska became a state myopia was rare. After becoming a state, more than 50 percent of the children in Alaska developed nearsightedness. Thus, correlation is such that nearsightedness or poor distance vision is highly correlated with success in reading. Restated another way, poor distance vision is associated with better reading abilities.  Farsighted children statistically are poorer readers than myopic children.

  • Finally a place I can trust to get things right! — Nirmal P.

    I had limited choices last year to get my eyes checked and went to a chain practice. I never felt comfortable with my prescription and had no recourse. I went to Bartlett Vision and felt comfortable the entire time. I love the detailed information provided by Dr Shah. Her and the staff did a great job explaining what they’re doing and why. Highly recommend this place for any eye care.
