Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Vision
Our authors found, adjusting for confounding variables, ADHD was greater among children with vision problems not correctable with glasses or contacts (15.6%) compared to those with normal vision (8.3%).
Phone interviews of parents of over 17,000 children ages 4-17 from the 2011-12 National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH), were conducted by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“I have seen so much growth in Kayla. She appears much less frustrated and seems more able to cope with frustrating situations. Last year she could not connect the dots to make a triangle to now being able to draw and microscope and it's parts from the board. She enjoys reading now and is doing adult connect the dot books. We used to spend hours on homework which was often not done correctly--to going to school all day and then math tutoring for an hour with no problems. She still struggles with reading and spelling, but on her last report card got all A's and 1B. She feels that the vision therapy has helped her be more successful in life (softball, school, etc). My personnel feeling is that Kayla's vision problems created a feeling of chaos or loss of control---she struggled with trying to control her life in a chaotic situation. Now she can make sense of the world visually, she is less angry, less stressed and feels more successful in life. Thank you for everything!”
