    My son is suffering from ADHD. He is going to the special kids’ school and he is getting care and attention there. But recently, his teachers have noticed some problems with him. He is not looking at the blackboard and he hardly recognizes people. He is also watching TV by going very near to it. He is reading by keeping the book so close to his eyes. He never had any eye related issues but anyways I am planning to take him to an eye specialist very soon. Is there any connection between vision problems and ADHD?

    I don’t know of any connection between vision problems and ADHD. It definitely sounds like he needs glasses, which can happen at any age. I would schedule an eye exam for him as soon as possible.
