Prevalence of Amblyopia

 

Read this article for a summary of research on prevalence of amblyopia, one of the most common non-legally-blind visual impediments in today’s classrooms. This research is approximately 40 years old, but still holds true. Regardless, all children should be screened for amblyopia and other visual dysfunction as a normal course of assessment for reading and learning difficulties, as well as at the beginning of the 13-year public school cycle.
