Very Interesting Vision Facts

  • An estimated 10 million children in the United States suffer from problems with their vision, ranging from simple nearsightedness to more complex problems like Oculormotor dysfunction.
  • Vision occurs in the Brain, not the eyes! Eyes send electrical impulses to the brain, which is then translated into vision. Dr. Elise Brisco (The Doctors)
  • You are not born with the ability to see, it is learned, stimulated and trained. Dr. Elise Brisco (The Doctors)
  • A person can have 20/20 eyesight, and yet have a visual problem which does not allow them to get meaning and understanding from what is seen.
  • Vision is learned and continues to develop from birth on into adulthood.
  • Vision problems can profoundly affect our lives: our ability to perform tasks, our self-esteem, and our interactions with others. 20/20 is only one small piece of the picture.
  • Nearsightedness and other visual conditions are often thought of as being hereditary in nature. However, the environment and how we use our eyes has at least equal, if not more influence on the development of vision.
  • Visual problems can have a major influence on conditions classified as Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, and Attention Deficit Disorder.
  • Lenses, prisms and vision therapy are effective treatments for strabismus (turned eyes). An evaluation for vision therapy should be done before surgery is considered.
