The Wisconsin Lions Foundation has made children’s vision screening a priority to ensure that every child has the best chance possible to succeed in learning.
of a child’s learning is sight-related
A child may not know he/she has a problem because the brain compensates for poor vision. This means that a child may not have symptoms that parents would notice.
Some vision problems must be identified before the child reaches the age of five to ensure successful treatment. This is true of Amblyopia (lazy eye), which if left untreated, can lead to permanent vision loss.
