What are the common symptoms of a focusing problem?


The most common symptoms include:

  • Eyestrain and headaches after reading for a short period of time
  • Inability to concentrate when reading
  • Short attention span
  • Rubbing or closing an eye
  • Words moving on the page
  • Good decoding skills, but poor comprehension

Eyeteaming problems that result in such symptoms actually have more impact on learning and performance at work than do vision problems that cause a lack of clarity. Unfortunately, most school vision screenings are only designed to detect vision problems that cause a lack of clarity. Very few school screenings even test for eyeteaming disorders.
