Vision is More Than Seeing Clearly
While visual acuity, or clarity, and sharpness of vision, is important, visual ability is more than 20/20 vision. The relationship between the visual system and the brain is important and complex. It must be synchronous not only to see objects clearly, but to establish binocular vision: the ability for both eyes to work together as a coordinated team.
When binocular vision is compromised, seemingly simple tasks such as walking up and down stairs, playing sports, detecting the speed of objects, as well as reading and writing can be challenging.
If you suspect that you, your child, or another family member has a problem with their binocular vision, please book an appointment with the binocular vision specialists at Bettner Vision.
