Dyslexia vs. Farsightedness

Nov 15, 2015 | A young patient this week had me thinking about just how similar are symptoms of Dyslexia and Farsightedness (Hyperopia).  If you are concerned about dyslexia in a child because of - disinterest in close tasks - low tolerance for reading - mixing up letters - reversing letters... these are symptoms of both conditions.   Please have the child's vision tested with a "cycloplegic" used.   This will rule out eye troubles before resources and time and energy are spent on a dyslexia work-up.    See us at Vision Source London for more information.  Studioeyecare.com   dr.j
