Color vision problems may make it harder for children to learn and read, which
can lead to poor schoolwork and low self-esteem.
You can help your
child these ways.
Make sure your child is tested for color
vision problems during routine eye tests. The sooner you know there is a
problem, the sooner you can help your child. Eye exams should be done at all well-child visits.1
Tell your child's
teachers and other school staff about the problem. This may be helpful. Suggest seating your child
where there is no glare and using a color of chalk that your child can see.
