VISION IS MORE THAN EYESIGHT
Vision is the ability to visualise, understand and apply the information that comes through the eyes. When using this guide and checklist we need to understand the difference between the terms SIGHT and VISION.
SIGHT or ACUITY is merely what results from the eyes’ responses to light shining into them and is measured by determining how well we can see different sized letters on a chart in the distance.
VISION results from the person actively interpreting and understanding the information made available through the eyes.
Children, Students, Adults with normal (20/20) EYESIGHT may not have these abilities.
