Research suggests that 1 in 10 children have an undiagnosed vision disorder, which can lead to permanent vision impairments if left untreated. Given that young children are unaware of how they should see, most do not typically tell adults that their vision is blurred.  Undetected vision problems can affect children in every aspect of their lives including their behavior, their learning, and their social developments.
