We know that you’ll do anything to protect your child’s health. Eyecare is one of the main components of a child’s health regime. Poor vision and eye health of a child may hinder its development. It is better to find and deal with the inadequacies and problems in the child’s eyes, so as to prevent it from growing into a big problem later in life. It is necessary for you to take your child to the doctor for regular check-ups.
The newborn babies, before they leave the hospital, must be screened to find out if their eyes are functioning properly. Health Visitors then carry out a 39-month assessment. This work is one of the most important sources of referrals to ophthalmologists and optometrists for detailed investigations. All the children should get a full eye examination before primary school and regularly after that. Many researches have proven that a child’s visual system develops almost completely before the age of 8. After this age, there will be little scope left for improvement. As said already, the earlier the treatment, the better.
