Why do words look shaky when I read

I'm a good reader for my age, and also pretty fast at it. Although I do read pretty well, whenever I read, every word around the one I'm reading just gets shakey for some reason. This weird shakiness makes me lose focus easier and also strains my eyes every once in a while. I'm pretty young (7th grade), so I would think that i don't need reading glasses. I still can see everything fine, and the shakiness doesn't really affect my reading ability. The only thing it does is give my eyes a weird feeling, make me lose focus, and give me occasional eye strain and minor headaches. Would this be a symptom of my ADHD, or would I really need glasses?

I can’t really say, but it wouldn’t hurt to get checked out by an optometrist anyway just to be safe! (If you can in the current pandemic situation)

Visit an optometrist to get this checked.
Also there is a possibility it is Irlen's syndrom (google it).
