New study says hyperopic children struggle with attention.

The study included almost 500 children, roughly half with moderate hyperopia and half with normal vision. They were tested for “visual attention”, meaning the ability to focus in on some visual stimuli and ignore others. They were shown one picture and then asked to find the match in a bunch of different pictures.
What did they find?
Overall, the children with moderate hyperopia were significantly more likely to have poorer scores on the attention-related tests.
The author says it’s important to recognize that moderate farsightedness has the potential to create hurdles to learning and literacy.
