The Impact that Improved Vision can have on Children

Dr. McBryar believes that one of the most positive aspects of successfully treating visual deficits in children, is in the sense of renewed confidence it instills in them.

Symptoms

Consequence of Struggling

Parents often report that as their children continue to struggle with visual problems in school, they begin to lose confidence and start comparing themselves with classmates. They begin to make generalized statements doubting their own intelligence, pointing to other students who appear to perform better as "proof" of their inferior intellect. The psychological effects can be devastating.

The Joy of Acquiring Skills and Renewed Confidence

Fortunately, children often thrive when they begin a proper treatment plan to improve these underlying vision problems. Children who struggled in school may suddenly become the child who raises her hand or wants to read aloud for the rest of the class.
Dr. McBryar believes that one of the most rewarding aspects of an improvement in a child’s visual skills is in seeing their renewed confidence and their excitement in expressing new skills. The impact of an enhanced sense of self-worth is as developmentally significant as any set of improved visual skills.

There are high visual demands for a school age child and when a child cannot keep up with these expectations, he or she can struggle in so many ways, including challenges with self-esteem. These struggles can often be overlooked or misdiagnosed, however very often the underlying problem can be related to a deficit in the child’s visual system. Dr. McBryar is experienced in diagnosing and treating these visual challenges which extend far beyond how well a child can read from the eye chart.
