Signs a child has vision or visual processing problems..., West Chester, Ohio

Dear Parents,

The new school year will be here before you know it. It doesn’t matter whether classes are online or in person, the key to having a successful academic year is good vision. During school, your child’s vision is constantly in use so when they are having a problem with their vision it can affect their academic performance.

Don’t assume your child’s vision is good. Start their school year off with a thorough eye examination. Only an eye examination can alert you to symptoms that may indicate your child has a vision or visual processing problem. Pay attention to these symptoms:

  • Loses his or her place while reading
  • Avoids close work
  • Holds reading material closer than normal
  • Tends to rub eyes
  • Has headaches
  • Turns or tilts head to use one eye only
  • Makes frequent reversals when reading or writing
  • Uses finger to maintain place while reading
  • Omits or confuses small words when reading
  • Performs below potential



Your child’s vision changes can occur without you or your child realizing it. Have your child’s vision examined at least once a year. Call (513) 755-7775 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Kenneth Crawford for an eye examination.
