This paper investigates whether there is a
correlation between a poor Visual Attention Span (VAS) and the
child's optometric status. Convergence excess impacts most
upon a male achieving a VAS-3 more than 75 per cent of the
time. Fifty per cent of females with eye-teaming problems are
unlikely to achieve a VAS-3 more than 25 per cent of the time.
Overall children with an optometric diagnosis were unlikely to
achieve a VAS-3 more than 75 per cent of the time. This
indicates that children with optometric conditions are more
likely to have a poor VAS ability.
