Abnormal visual acuity (the inability to see clearly) is a common condition in children. The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools, with support from the Vision Council of America, has developed a fact sheet, Childhood Vision: What the Research Tells Us, summarizing the most recent research related to children’s eye problems and suggesting implications for school-based health care. The fact sheet is available in PDF and HTML versions.
