Mums and Dads go on a creative frenzy thinking of kids’ costume ideas that weren’t already used in the past years.

It’s about a looming issue that needs to be addressed—and the sooner it is detected, the better for our schoolchildren. Watch this: One in 5 schoolchildren are living with an undetected vision problem. Vision problems such as poor eye focusing, teaming and tracking make vision uncomfortable.

ReadAlyzer Tracks Eye Movements to Capture Reading Difficulties in Children

When we read, our eyes move in a coordinated fashion. This is called eye tracking. Eye movements are a combination of short, rapid movements (saccades) and short stops (fixations).
