Here is a statistic for you: 1 in 5 kids have a vision disorder Many kids with vision problems just assume their poor vision is normal, because they’ve never experienced anything different. If these vision problems are not checked, they can cause serious long-term effects.
A little girl named Grace came into our practice with a very prominent eye turn outward – these outward turned eyes are referred to as exotropia. She was seeing double and blurred vision, and other kids would ask her whether she was looking at them, noticing that one eye was facing another direction. She also felt eye strain, and got frequent headaches.
