ADHD and convergence insufficiency

ADHD is a neuropsychiatric diagnosis that often affects the ability to focus, organize and control impulses. Often, ADHD co-occurs with what is known as convergence insufficiency and sometimes they can even be confused.

Convergence insufficiency means that the eyes do not work together as well as they could. This eye coordination problem is very common and affects about 10% of the population. convergence insufficiency are not primarily a problem with the eyes. It is a problem with the brain’s coordination of the eyes.

Poor eye coordination affects your ability to concentrate

When you have problems with poor eye coordination, you find it difficult to focus on a point with both eyes. The brain tries to compensate for the problem and has to work harder, which consumes a lot of energy in the frontal lobe. In just 10 minutes, up to 90% of the brain’s available energy can be consumed. This is a major contributor to the symptoms and also explains why improved coherence has a major impact on people with ADHD.

What is ADHD?

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neuropsychiatric disorder that usually appears in childhood but often continues into adulthood. It is characterized by difficulties in maintaining attention and concentration, and by overactivity and impulsiveness. People with ADHD may have difficulty organizing tasks, following instructions and finishing projects. It is a heterogeneous condition with different levels of severity and different combinations of symptoms. ADHD affects not only an individual’s academic and professional performance but also their relationships and overall quality of life.

Some symptoms and signs

  • Attention problems: Difficulty maintaining attention for long periods, easily distracted by external stimuli.
  • Hyperactivity: overactivity, difficulty sitting still, often feeling restless.
  • Impulsiveness: Acting without thinking about the consequences, difficult to wait your turn.

Diagnosis and investigation

Diagnosing ADHD is a complex process that involves a careful evaluation of the individual’s symptoms, behavioral patterns and life history. Usually the diagnosis is carried out by a qualified psychologist, psychiatrist or specialist in neuropsychiatry. Diagnostic criteria established by diagnostic manuals such as DSM-5 or ICD-10 are used as guidelines to assess whether an individual meets the requirements for an ADHD diagnosis.

The evaluation can include a variety of methods, such as interviews with the individual and their family members to collect information on the duration and severity of symptoms. Psychological tests can also be used to assess cognitive and attentional functions. In addition, behavioral and observational assessments can be done to observe the individual’s interactions and behavior in different settings, such as home or school.

It is important to note that the diagnosis of ADHD is not only based on the presence of symptoms, but also on how these symptoms affect the individual’s daily life functions and ability to function in different environments. A holistic view of the individual’s behavior, cognitive abilities and life situation is considered during the diagnostic process.

Once an ADHD diagnosis has been established, different treatment options and support strategies can be discussed and implemented to help the individual manage their symptoms and optimize their functioning. It is important to emphasize that the diagnosis of ADHD is not a label, but rather a guide to understanding and managing the individual’s unique needs and challenges.

Living with ADHD

Living with ADHD means dealing with a variety of challenges in everyday life, but it also means having unique strengths and abilities. Many people with ADHD are creative, energetic and able to think outside the box. By embracing these positive characteristics and working on effective strategies to manage their difficulties, people with ADHD can thrive and achieve success.

It is also important to recognize that ADHD affects not only the individual but also family, friends and colleagues. Creating a supportive and understanding environment can help people with ADHD to succeed and flourish. Education and awareness of ADHD is essential to reduce stigma and promote acceptance and inclusion.

Finally, it is important to remember that there is no simple solution to ADHD. Treating and managing ADHD can be a long process that requires patience, persistence and commitment. By taking small steps every day and working towards their goals, people with ADHD can overcome obstacles and live a meaningful and rewarding life.
