At Eye on Education, our passion is to improve the student's life experience through optimized visual performance. Our goal is to diagnose and treat blurred vision, amblyopia(lazy eye), & ocular disease early, in order to enhance a child's academic performance and well being. Vision is the most important sense that we have for learning.
Utilizing state-of-the-art examination equipment, stylish eyewear, and an expert eye care team, we aim to optimize your student’s visual and ocular health today and into the future.
75 to 90 percent of all learning is Visual. Visual Skills are not only how well a child can see the eye chart, they include tracking, focusing, and good depth perception.
Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) is the most common cause of vision problems in children and young adults
It’s estimated to be the leading cause of vision loss in children, affecting almost 500,000 preschoolers annually !
"73% of children with eye problems will pass a routine vision screening by a school nurse or pediatrician, but will fail an eye exam by an eye doctor. In a comprehensive eye exam, you identify a problem and take care of it. “When you screen someone, it gives them the false sense they had an eye exam when they didn't”. Dr. Powell, President of American Optometric Association
Recent data shows that in the U.S. only 7% of children beginning first grade report having received an eye exam. Research shows that children with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), in the range of 6-16 years, and juvenile offenders, have high rates of undiagnosed and untreated eye problems including hyperopia (farsightedness) affecting reading speed and comprehension.
