Vision Problems in Children are Common

80% of children in Alberta begin school without a comprehensive eye exam, yet vision problems have been identified as one of the major factors in limiting a child’s ability to learn and succeed. For the first 12 years of a child’s life, 80% of a child’s learning is visual – good grades go hand in hand with good vision! It is estimated that 1 out of every 4 children begin Grade One with an uncorrected or undiagnosed eye health or vision problem. Many times, children will not complain of vision problems simply because they don’t know what “normal” vision looks like.
