EYESIGHT IS ONLY ONE SMALL PART OF VISION
(Excerpts from OPEN YOUR EYES AND LISTEN)
Visual processing disorders cannot be detected by merely peering into a person’s eye. In order to determine whether visual skills are developing properly, and in the correct sequence, the mind-eye connection must be examined. In fact, there are 306 visual connections among 47 different sections of the brain, meaning that there inputs to the visual system from many different areas of the brain, including some not originally thought to have anything to do with eyes or eyesight. Visual systems affect our daily lives. Timely and proper treatment can help develop or enhance these visual systems.
EYESIGHT IS THE ACT OF SEEING.
VISION IS THE ACT OF GIVING MEANING TO PERCEIVED INFORMATION.
