Eye Problems To Worry About In Children


“Eyes are the windows to the world” says the old adage. True, eyes are the medium through which we see the world .

Being such vital organs, our eyes need to function properly, without any trouble. But, quite often, eye problems affect people due to various reasons, and create vision malfunctions. It happens in children too.

Eye problems do not necessarily mean only the usual defects like long-sightedness or short-sightedness that people suffer from. From watery eyes to Amblyopia, and fromconjunctivitis to crossed eyes, eye problems are varied and numerous.

According to an article titled Strabismus and Crossed Eyes by Gary Heiting OD published in allaboutvision.com in 2017, both large-angle and small-angle strabismus can impact the self-esteem of children as it interferes with normal eye contact with others. A good idea for parents would be to conduct routine eye exams for children as negligence may lead to complications like double vision, amblyopia or visual symptoms.

Healthy eyes are a critical part of a child’s development. With regular examination, many eye diseases can be detected and treated appropriately.
