ParentCircle

Some common eye infections in children are redness, conjuctivitis and pus in the eye. There are several ways to treat these infections effectively. For e.g. conjuctivitis in new-born babies is treated by introducing a small amount of bacteria in the system, which helps build immunity against the same. Similarly, consulting your doctor can help you treat these infections at home by bringing small changes in your daily routine. Children are known to have an adaptive behavior, and if a disciplined regimen is introduced in time, they can follow the same without any discomfort.

According to Momjunction, “A well balanced diet has green and red leafy vegetables like carrots, spinach and beetroot. Their diet should also comprise yellow fruits like papayas and mangoes that have carotene in huge quantities. Carotene is an antecedent to Vitamin A and is considered very well for healthy eyes.”

By following these simple tips and making your child educated about the causes resulting in these problems, you can keep your child's eyes healthy, beautiful and bright. Thus, do not miss out on these simple changes that can give you effective results.
