Forty-nine fourth grade students were tested with the Carbo Learning Styles Inventory test, as well as being screened with fifteen standard optometric vision tests. The purpose of the project was to determine if there is any correlation between a child's visual profile and his/her learning style. It was anticipated that the research would show that poor visual learners had more vision anomalies than good or excellent visual learners and that the learning styles test might be used as an effective screening device for children with visually-related learning problems. The results, however, did not demonstrate any significant relationship between learning styles and the optometric tests.
