  1. The relationship between moderate hyperopia and academic achievement : how much plus is enough ?

    Article - En anglais

    BACKGROUND

    There is evidence linking uncorrected hyperopia in children with academic learning problems.

    METHODS

    This study was designed to test that hypothesis and-given supportive data-to then address a second topic : the minimal amount of uncorrected hyperopia that appears to impede elementary school performance.

    RESULTS

    The refractive status and achievement test scores of 782 first-through-fifth grade children were compared.

    CONCLUSIONS

    Statistical analysis indicated significantly lower achievement test scores among hyperopic children whose refractive errors exceeded 1.25 D (ANOVA F=12.51 ; df=4 ; p=0.014).
