Eyesight and Vision at Appelbaum Vision

There is a great deal more to vision than purely eyesight

Eyesight involves the ability of the eye to distinguish small details, such as seeing what is written on the chalkboard in a classroom, on the letter chart in an eye exam, or on a street sign while driving. Eyesight is only one component of vision.

Vision is far more intricate and complicated

Vision is how the eyes work together, move together, focus together, and make sense of and process what they see. Vision is the ability to interpret and extract meaning from the information that exists in one’s world. Vision is the result of the brain’s ability to interpret and understand the information that comes through the eyes.

Many children and adults can demonstrate 20/20 eyesight and still have a critical and interfering vision problem!
