[Source: Your Therapy Source]
The Journal of Optometry published a retrospective chart review on binocular vision function and reading performance in 121 children who were identified with reading problems according to their IEP. The researchers focused on acuity and binocular vision such as accommodation (focus), vergence (turning the eye in and out) and oculomotor skills (tracking).
The results of the chart review on binocular vision function and reading performance in children indicated the following:
- No significant refractive error was found in 81% of children.
- Thirteen children were identified as strabismic.
