With bad sight you're at a disadvantage

Some children just puzzle us: despite normal or even above average intelligence they have massive problems writing and reading. The reasons for this partial inefficiency or dyslexia are unknown.


Certain is only that this is a case of impaired auditory and visual reception. The affected children often don't like to read, need breaks after very few, very hesitant sentences, complain about head or stomach aches and about reddened eyes. Striking are spidery handwriting, uneven sized letters and poor keeping-in-line while writing. The children often mistake letters like b/d or p/b while reading, leave out letters or double them. Furthermore there can also be disruptions in fine and gross motor skills like clumsiness, difficulties with colouring and cutting out, as well as unsteadiness at ball games.

The aforementioned symptoms often come along with a general tiredness and listlessness and cause bad school achievements as a result. Hidden, not corrected sight defects can be the reason or can enhance already existing, other problems. In many of those cases associated heterophoria is this reason.


As eye experts we have specialised in the early detection and professional correction of such cases of ametropia. Because we are convinced: acute sight is the best precondition for acute thinking – so that your child enjoys learning again!
