Did you know that 1 out of every 4 school-age children has a vision problem?
There is a difference between sight and vision. The difference between eyesight (20/20 acuity) and vision, is that eyesight is the ability to see at distance, and that’s it! Most optometrists check eyesight at 20/20 distance, and nothing more. Vision encompasses many things as it is a part of our 5 senses. Vision is made up of binocular (two eyes) vision, peripheral vision, depth perception, spatial awareness and 3D. The eyes and brain have to work together to make sure one is seeing what they are supposed to see, where they are to see it spatially, how they are seeing it, and what they are seeing. The eyes have to team and track together so that one eye is not being suppressed.
