Do I or Someone I Know Have A Vision Problem?

It is currently estimated that 1 out of 4 school age children and 7 out of 10 juvenile offenders suffer with undiagnosed vision problems that effect performance in school and in life.

According to the American Foundation for Vision Awareness, vision disorders are the fourth most common disability in the United States and the most prevalent handicapping condition in childhood.

70% of what a child learns in school is processed through the visual system. Even a minor visual processing problem will interfere with a child or adult performing to their potential

Did you know that visual perceptual and visual efficiency problems, which interfere with learning, can be permanently resolved?

Yet, according to the Better Vision Institute, only 14% of children have had a comprehensive vision exam by first grade. Based on research, the National PTA and the National Society for the Prevention of Blindness estimates 10,000,000 students suffer with undiagnosed vision problems in our schools and that good visual skills are necessary for successful learning.

Public awareness is necessary to insure children and adults with learning related vision problems get the care they need, which is what P.A.V.E.®’s mission is all about.
