In a recent Channel 12 News segment titled "Undiagnosed Vision Disorder Causes Reading Problems in Kids," Dr. Murray, a developmental optometrist, shared her insights on a prevalent yet often overlooked issue. Dr. Murray explained that many children struggling with reading difficulties are misdiagnosed with learning disabilities when, in fact, they suffer from undiagnosed vision disorders. She emphasized the importance of comprehensive eye exams, noting that school standard vision screenings might not detect subtle issues like convergence insufficiency or accommodative dysfunction. Dr. Murray's explanations shed light on how these vision problems can significantly impact a child's academic performance and self-esteem, urging parents and educators to seek thorough optometric evaluations for children facing unexplained reading challenges.
