Q&A with Dr. Carabello

Dr. Carabello Answers Your Eye Care Questions

Why is my child having trouble reading and concentrating on schoolwork?

A child can be struggling with reading and concentrating on school work for many reasons. One of the main eye related reasons is uncorrected refractive error, meaning the child may need glasses. Another common reason is poor eye teaming skills or poor eye focusing skills. It is important for the child to have a comprehensive eye exam to see if any eye related problem is causing trouble with reading and concentration.
