Children Eye Examination


Vi­su­al de­vel­op­ment in chil­dren is crit­i­cal be­tween birth and age of 7 – 8. Vi­su­al prob­lems such as my­opia (i.e. near­sight­ed­ness), far-sight­ed­ness, astig­ma­tism and squint are not un­com­mon in chil­dren. How­ev­er, chil­dren, es­pe­cial­ly younger ones, may not be able to ex­press clear­ly the prob­lem with their vi­sion, if these vi­su­al prob­lems per­sist with­out prop­er man­age­ment, their vi­su­al de­vel­op­ment might be dis­turbed and re­sults in am­bly­opia. Poor vi­sion may have ad­verse im­pact on learn­ing and so­cial de­vel­op­ment of chil­dren, so it is rec­om­mend­ed for eye screen­ing at the age of 3 – 4.
