5 Signs of a Functional Vision Problem
Headaches? Problems with coordination? Feeling “off”? Vision problems could be the culprit. Learn how functional vision issues could be affecting your life.
Some of life’s most basic activities require a complex range of dynamic vision skills that an eye chart cannot measure alone! So, what is Functional Vision? Learn more below.
Your two eyes and brain must all work together to navigate the world. It’s this connection that makes up your functional vision. A standard eye exam, however, only checks your eyes’ physical health and ability to focus on stationary objects — it doesn’t measure critical dynamic vision skills such as eye movement and coordination.
Some of life’s most basic activities rely on your eyes, eye muscles and brain working together: driving a car, reading a book, playing a sport and simply maintaining your balance. This is what’s known has functional vision.
Signs that you may have a functional vision problem include:
Rereading or skipping lines of print
Short attention span
Poor reading comprehension
Poor coordination or balance
Slow completion of work
Previous brain trauma (concussions, strokes)
Loss of interest in reading
