Welcome to the Vision and Learning Library. The place for advanced understanding of how vision affects learning and what can be done to improve the visual problems that interfere with human performance.
Vision is our dominant sensory system through which we read, learn and grow academically. Developmental/rehabilitative optometry is the professional discipline that helps to remediate and prevent the senseless struggle that occurs when poorly developed vision or a neurological event, such as a concussion, interferes with learning.
In addition it is important to consider that for many, a professional “team approach,” working together for the common good of the patient, will help ensure that those of all ages will have the best opportunity for learning. A partnership is developed between the parents and these professionals.
