ADHD & Vision Problems

Parents who have a child diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) may be surprised to learn about functional vision problems.  Both issues have similar symptoms, which can lead to confusion about the true cause of a child’s struggles.

We’ve had many cases over the years in which parents have brought in a child with ADHD, only to discover that many of their symptoms could be attributed to a functional vision problem.
Functional vision involves your ability to see an object in space.  It’s more than just seeing 20/20 on a vision chart.  It’s how your eyes, brain, and visual pathways work together to perceive objects in space, process visual information, and other skills.

When your functional vision skills aren’t working correctly, the resulting symptoms can closely resemble many of the issues that challenge a child (or adult) with ADHD.
