A vision related learning problem can actually be at the core of a learning disability. As many as 1 in 4 children have a vision problem that affects learning.  According to Wendy Beth Rosen, author of The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning, millions of learning-disabled children are misdiagnosed. She also mentions in her book that 15 out of the 18 symptoms of ADHD are present with a vision problem; and 13 of the 17 symptoms of dyslexia are also present with a vision problem.  Right Eye, with its five-minute, non-invasive test, can assist with a differential diagnosis by determining the eye-movement of an individual who may be struggling in school.  RightEye precisely measures and records eye movement during a reading task, to deliver objective, graphical results in the form of a Reading EyeQ report.
