Children and Youth Need Comprehensive Vision Care

Reason for signing

  • If I had a comprehensive vision exam when I was young I would be years ahead of where I am and would probably have been in medical school. Instead, I was diagnosed at the age of 23 with convergence insufficiency when vision therapy was much more difficult, less permanent, and after my bachelor's. Comprehensive exams are extremely important for overall visual health and learning.
