Reading Assessments for Children

One in four children has a vision problem that affects learning — a vision problem that is often misinterpreted as disinterest, sleepiness, dyslexia or ADHD. Eyesight (the ability to receive input through the eye) is not the same as vision (the ability to understand what that input is). Recognizing this distinction has monumental implications. Even a child with 20/20 eyesight can have a vision issue at the core of their learning problem.

To complicate matters, vision-related learning problems share the same symptoms as countless learning disability diagnoses, including:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Rereading or skipping lines of print
  • Letter reversals
  • Difficulty recognizing words
  • Short attention span
  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Poor handwriting
  • Slow completion of work
  • Loss of interest in reading

But thanks to RightEye’s Reading Assessment test, our doctors are able to expose vision and brain health in ways not possible from standard eye tests, gifting you with the opportunity to change your child’s life forever.

What is next if you are diagnosed with a functional vision issue?

If you’ve been diagnosed with a functional or a vision issue, our doctors can set you up with at-home exercises you can do online. All you need is a computer and an internet connection.

Based on your RightEye EyeQ test results, we’ll assign a series of exercises you complete at home under our supervision. EyeQ Trainer is a non-invasive, computer-based treatment proven to help improve your functional vision. It rehabilitates all six movement systems of the eye and promotes positive neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to make important neural connections.

  • Key benefits of the solution include:
  • Simple, low-intensity exercises
  • Done at home, on your own schedule
  • Uses your own computer
  • Takes just 5 minutes, twice a day
  • Trains all 12 eye muscles
  • Noticeable improvement, often within a few weeks

The result — improved functional vision and smoother, more accurate eye movements — can lead to better focus and concentration, improved balance and hand-eye coordination, and enhanced performance in everything from reading to driving to sports. EyeQ Trainer is personalized to your specific needs, so that we can focus on those areas that affect you most.
