Helping Children See

One in Four U.S. Students Missing the Equivalent of 135 Days of School Content each School Year

Nearly all tasks a child performs in the classroom depend on healthy visual skills. Research indicates that students
with undetected and untreated vision disorders (i.e., one in four students), miss a shocking 75 to 90 percent of all learning (the equivalent of 135 days of school content annually), due to hidden vision challenges (i.e., binocular vision challenges and non-myopic I non-nearsighted refractive errors) that make them unable to cognitively process classroom information.
