There are three main components to “vision.”
Vision doesn’t just happen. It is a learned process. From the moment we are born, our visual skills begin developing. This is why it is important for infants, children, and adults to have regular eye exams to ensure these visual skills are developing appropriately.
Visual skills are extremely important in our everyday lives, and they have a huge impact on our school and work performance. For example, reading requires several different visual skills to function at the same time at a highly efficient level. To read, our eyes must track across the page, fixate on the word we are reading, focus on the page at the distance we are holding the book, both eyes must move across the page in a coordinated fashion, visual memory to remember what we have read in the past, and comprehension of what was just read.
