eye problems without sypmtoms

How does denial, wishful thinking, fear and other perceptual alterations affect reporting of vision problems?  I’ll talk later about more serious  vision/systemic health problems but for now we’ll keep it simple.

Regular, comprehensive eye exams can be very revealing especially when no symptoms are self reported! Back to School evaluations.
