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. This week two ‘routine’ eye exams on teens revealed significant vision problems requiring optical correction. Why didn’t they notice or why didn’t they want to say something? Regular, comprehensive eye exams can be very revealing especially when no symptoms are self reported! Back to School evaluations.
