Children are another group which are vulnerable and susceptible to poor vision if not detected early.
As a parent, you may wonder whether your pre-schooler has a vision problem or when you should schedule your child’s first eye exam. Eye exams for children are extremely important.
Early identification and management is mandatory as children are more responsive to treatment when diagnosed early.
Most common problems affecting children are refractive errors either short-sightedness (myopia) or far-sightedness (hyperopia) which is easily corrected with the correct prescription for glasses. The second most common problem is strabismus or squint. Children who are born prematurely also are at risk of reduced vision and require through check up by an ophthalmologist.
