Vision Problem Checklist: Signs and Symptoms

A vision checklist for teachers and parents.

Vision problems can elicit a wide range of signs and symptoms. Some, like eyestrain or blurred vision, can usually be attributed directly to a vision dysfunction. Others, such as poor attention span at school, clumsiness in sports, or reduced productivity at work, may not immediately be recognized as possible signs of a vision problem.  The following is a listing of common signs or symptoms of vision problems that may indicate the need for a comprehensive vision exam:

  • Frequent headaches or eye strain
  • Blurring of distance or near vision, particularly after reading or close work
  • Avoidance of close work or other visually demanding tasks
  • Turning of an eye in or out, up or down
  • Tendency to cover or close one eye, or favor the vision in one eye
  • Double vision
  • Poor hand-eye coordination
  • Difficulty following a moving target
  • Dizziness or motion sickness
  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Difficulty copying from one place to another
  • Loss of place, repetition, and/or omission of words while reading
  • Difficulty changing focus from distance to near and back
  • Poor handwriting
  • Can respond orally but cannot get the same information down on paper
  • Letter and word reversals
  • Difficulty judging sizes and shapes

As explained in an earlier article, annual exams are needed to monitor children’s vision.  Infants 6 months through 12 months are eligible for free exams through InfantSee providers.  Children must get their eyes examined before pre-K and Kindergarten… school screeners are not comprehensive enough to catch all the subtle things that can effect your child’s learning.
