Reading disabilities & helping students achieve their full learning potential! 

I am an optometrist who has enjoyed working with reading disabilities for 30 years.  One of the major etiologies that I diagnose & treat is a visual condition called convergence excess.  This is a medical condition of the eyes.  With this condition both eyes point or aim inside of where they are focused (unable to focus and aim at the same point at the same time).  This is a fine-motor crossing of the eyes (gross-motor being observably crossed eyes).  It creates a reduced fine-motor skill problem in tracking at near tasks such as reading. 

 

Fine-motor skills become more important in reading as the print becomes smaller and the student is required to comprehend material rather than read single words.  Usually this becomes apparent in third graders, if not detected earlier.

 

Symptoms include below level: reading ability, comprehension and attention to near tasks.  Headaches, general lack of interest in reading and better scores in math than reading are also common.  They are often bright students with below average ability to read.  They are often told they have dyslexia.  They typically pass school visual screenings even while being in a remedial reading class.

 

If you have a student that has been told they have dyslexia and especially if they use one finger to read, have them cover one eye & if they read significantly better, they probably have the condition I am referring to & not dyslexia.  These are students I can usually help.

 

Examinations for this condition are covered by most major health insurances.  The student should check their health insurance doctor panel, as I am on most.

 

If I can help with students that try hard but still struggle, especially in reading, or you have any questions, please call.

 

Dr. Jeffrey Luthi enjoys working with kids and impacting their lives to maximize their health and productivity.  In his spare time, he likes wakeboarding, sailing and snow skiing. Jeff and his wife live in Olathe and have two children.
