Help your child protect the windows of the soul.


   The condition of children with eye disease is a matter of concern for many parents. If you don’t pay attention to recognize the signs and take the child to a specialist for timely treatment, the child can lose his vision permanently.

1. Why care about young eyes?

According to statistics in the US, 1 in 20 preschool children has eye problems, 1 in 4 school-age children have vision problems. If left untreated, they can lose their vision permanently. Many eye problems can be treated stably if detected early and treated promptly. Parents can help their children protect their “window to the soul” by keeping their eyes healthy, recognizing danger signs, and taking them to a specialist right away.
The ominous signs in children are: squinting eyes, squinting constantly, children often complain of headaches, rub their eyes repeatedly, inability to distinguish different colors, blurred vision, vision one to two, discoloration of the iris, swollen and itchy eyes, red and watery eyes, two irises looking uneven, injured eyes…

2. General eye problems.

Here are some common signs of eye diseases in children:

* Eyes look a bit cross

About 4% of children in the United States have the condition, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Your baby’s eyes are looking straight ahead, but he’s actually looking right, left, above or below. It can be congenital when the baby is born with too tight eye muscles or it can arise because it is not treated properly during childhood. To treat this disease often requires the child to wear glasses or surgery.

* Eye vision loss.

About 2% of children have vision loss. In these children, one eye is usually weaker than the other, and the brain must “close” the images received from the weaker eye. Treatment may require glasses, surgery, or a patch on the stronger eye. If not treated early, children will have vision loss and more dangerously, may lose vision permanently.

* Myopic .

Babies and toddlers are less likely to get this eye disease than school-age children. Children with myopia can only see close objects clearly, with distant objects not clearly visible. Wearing glasses will help the baby to improve this situation.

* Farsightedness.

In contrast to nearsightedness, children with farsightedness can only see distant objects clearly at a certain distance, but when they look up close, they cannot see clearly. According to one study, infants and children have a small percentage of this disease. Wearing glasses is also a solution for children with presbyopia.

* Conjunctivitis (red eye).

In infants and young children, viral and bacterial infections are often the cause of red eyes. For older children, the cause may be allergies. Symptoms often include: red and watery eyes. Treatment of pink eye is a bacterial one, so eye drops or ointments must be used. Take your child to the doctor right away if your child shows signs of red eye.

* Astigmatism .

Astigmatism is the result of a slightly unusual shape of the cornea (the front part of the eye). Astigmatism can cause blurred vision. Depending on the extent, wearing glasses is the method commonly used.
