Dr. Davis Announces Some Diagnoses of ADHD May be Misinterpreted Visual Problems: Could Be Treated with Vision Therapy
Date:6/29/2012

Gainesville, Va. (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Before accepting a child’s diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), have their vision tested by a developmental optometrist. According to Dr. Tod Davis, a developmental optometrist and vision therapy expert, your child’s behavioral problem may in fact be vision-related.

“Most parents don’t realize that there’s so much more to healthy vision than being able to see 20/20,” he said. “Poor visual skills can lead to a host of other problems, including short attention span and difficulty with reading or doing homework.” As stated in the College of Optometrist recent press release on June 4, 2012 many children are labeled with ADHD, when in fact it is convergence insufficiency.

One example of a vision disorder which can cause ADHD-like symptoms is convergence insufficiency. A child with this disorder has difficulties aligning and focusing their eyes properly when reading or doing close work.

Experts estimate that 1 in every 20 children have this eye coordination problem. However, one research study, performed in 2000 by San Diego researchers, found that, “children with ADHD had three times the incidence of convergence insufficiency than what was expected in children walking in off the street,” according to Dr. David B. Granet of the Shiley Eye Center.

“This correlation can mean co-incidence of the two disorders,” notes Dr. Davis
