Vision therapy can be one of the top ways to treat common vision conditions such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. This is an especially useful treatment for school children, whose eyes easily adapt to the therapy techniques. Unfortunately, not every child gets the treatment they need when they’re young and conditions like amblyopia and strabismus […]

Strabismus and amblyopia are two very closely linked eye conditions that affect our eye muscles. These conditions are mostly found in children, however, when left untreated, they can become a permanent condition in adult eyes. Strabismus and amblyopia are often confused and people have a hard time telling the two apart. Both conditions affect the […]
We’ve thrown this stat at our readers more times than we can count, but it’s just such a pertinent one that we’re going to give it to you one more time: Did you know that 80 percent of all learning is visual? Though this statistic refers mostly to classroom learning, it really does speak to […]
Welcome to part two of our mini-series on common eye problems in pre-schoolers. If you recall we published part one in December. In part one, we outlined three of the most common eye conditions your pre-school may be subject to developing: amblyopia (lazy eye), hyperopia (farsightedness) and myopia (nearsightedness). This month, we’re back with three more […]
As we age, plenty of us find ourselves wishing for the clearer vision we had as children. After all, an awful lot of the conditions we like to talk about on RYV – cataracts, presbyopia, macular degeneration – are all associated with older bodies rather than youthful ones. But younger eyes are anything but indestructible. […]
We spend a lot of time on RYV talking about the effects that vision can have on the day-to-day lives of older people. Presbyopia, glaucoma, cataracts, AMD – all are extremely common, severe eye disorders, and all are much more likely to affect silver citizens than they are children. Sometimes though, visual problems can have […]
It’s probably not controversial to call early childhood an important, formative period. After all, it’s where we develop the basis of our personalities and habits, our likes and our dislikes, and even lay the foundation of good or poor health. Eyesight is also subject to change very early on in a child’s life. Over the […]
They might not be the first childhood problem parents think about, but reading disorders are almost shockingly prevalent in today’s youth. Roughly five to six percent of all students in the U.S. receive treatment for some form of dyslexia (neurologically-caused reading disorders), and even that high number barely scratches the 20 percent of the population […]
As if adult eye health wasn’t complex enough. Vision problems are enormously widespread among children of just about any age, but often don’t receive the same attention as disorders in the general adult population. It’s time to go over the numbers. Not only are many disorders already affecting a shocking number of younger people, but […]
Infants don’t necessarily seem like the most obvious candidates for an eye exam. They’re young, growing, and years away from the age-related vision disorders we spend so much time talking about on this site. However, even though they might not have the same worries about macular degeneration that you do, there’s still a wide range […]
Childhood is a crucial period for visual health. Younger eyes take some time to fully mature – babies lack distance vision, tracking, and even color vision at birth, and develop these abilities over the first few months of life. Even after infancy, vision still doesn’t reach full maturity until well into childhood, with some skills, […]
