study published in the Journal of Behavioral Optometry surveyed 150 teachers in Michigan through an online survey. The purpose was to examine the perceptions of teachers concerning the connection between vision problem detection, academic achievement and vision therapy intervention.
The survey found that 86% of teachers had recommended at least one child for a comprehensive vision examination. Squinting was the most common reason for the recommendation.
81.9% of teachers reported witnessing improvement in students who had undergone vision therapy and most participants (86%) believed that the state or federal government should enact a mandatory comprehensive eye examination program.
The result is not surprising because it is consistent with what we hear form parents and teachers of vision therapy patients we have had in our clinic Many of them tell us that vision therapy has changed the child's life! The result is also expected from all the studies that have been done on vision therapy and its impact on academic performance.
