Eye checks for children

Gavin LeSueur - September 6, 2017

Between 2% to 4% of preschool-aged children have amblyopia, an alteration in the visual neural pathway in the developing brain that can lead to permanent vision loss in the affected eye. The common name is ‘Lazy eye’ and usually occurs in one eye. Identification of vision impairment before school entry could help identify children who may benefit from early interventions to correct or to improve vision.

Eye examination and vision testing should be done at least once between the ages of 3 & 5 years. Then they will be happy to see you!
