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.
