Children with ADD/ADHD: Survey results provide insights into effective optometric vision management of this special population

Children with ADHD/ADD often face more challenges during eye exams, as they may have a higher incidence of vision problems like refractive errors and binocular dysfunctions compared to their peers without ADHD/ADD. Vision therapy can be beneficial for these children, although the effects of medication on therapy outcomes can vary. Some hyperactive behaviors in children with ADHD/ADD may be linked to visual problems and poor visual information processing. Many optometrists report that children with ADHD/ADD often struggle with issues such as eye coordination and focusing. Identifying and treating vision problems in children with ADHD/ADD can significantly improve their overall behavior and ability to learn. Overall, addressing vision issues is crucial for the effective management of ADHD/ADD in children.
