Good vision is critical to learning, because more than 80 percent of learning is done visually. Yet studies indicate that more than 20 percent of kindergarten children have vision problems, and this number climbs to between 30 and 40 percent by the time these children reach high school graduation.
Vision problems may keep many children from graduating from high school, as more than 70 percent of juvenile delinquents and 60 percent of adults in literacy programs have vision problems. SEE TO LEARN® was developed to reduce these statistics, and optometrists from across the country are working together to make sure all children can see to learn.
