The study began when lead investigator Dawn DeCarlo, director of the UAB Center for Low Vision Rehabilitation, noticed that many patients had both ADHD and vision problems.

...
I think it is more important that parents realize that children with vision problems may also have attention problems and that both require professional diagnosis and treatment," explained DeCarlo.
DeCarlo suggests that parents and healthcare practitioners should monitor children with vision impairments for ADHD so both issues can be treated. She also says that parents should not worry that children with vision problems will develop ADHD, but should instead focus on ensuring that children's vision needs are addressed.

Director of the UAB Center for Low Vision Rehabilitation, Dawn DeCarlo, OD, was the lead investigator on the study. She says just because vision problems that are not correctable with glasses or contacts are associated with ADHD that does not mean that one causes the other.

The national study was produced in response to patients of DeCarlo exhibiting vision impairment and ADHD. A previous paper reported an increased prevalence of ADHD among the children in her vision rehabilitation clinic.
"Because we do not know if the relationship is causal, we have no recommendations for prevention," DeCarlo said. "I think it is more important that parents realize that children with vision problems may also have attention problems and that both require professional diagnosis and treatment."
So if your child has vision problems, should you be worried about them developing ADHD?
"I wouldn't worry about them developing ADHD," DeCarlo said.
