Vision and learning are closely related to each other and school is the first formal space for learning. When children have difficulty in school — from learning to read to understanding lessons taught to seeing the blackboard — many teachers often suspect the child to be having a vision problem which often ends up being correct. Hence, it would not be wrong to say that teachers have always played a crucial and integral role in screening and identifying vision problems among children.
Orbis has developed this manual with an aim to aid teachers in identifying vision problems, eye diseases and disorders among their students and also educating students on eye health and safety.
We hope this will be of help to more and more teachers to identify and refer students with eye-related problems.
