The purpose of this study was to discover if there is a relationship between reading loss and visual disability and to assay the reading losso that is characteristic for individuals with a visual disability. The intent was not to diagnose that all reading loss can be attributed to a visual disability or define visual defects, for the latter requires a careful examination by an eye specialist, but rather to determine if the child’s reading may be affected by a blurred visual image or by eye-muscle fatigue.
