Which eye problems are seen in childhood?
Eye slippage, visual disturbances, eye infections and eye damage are all common to children. You can help your child protect their eyes by following the symptoms and having their eyes checked at the first sign of the problem.
Causes Eye Shift?
Children's eyes sometimes they don't work together as needed. One of the eyes may be “lazy,, inward, outward or downward, upward (strabismus). In this case, the brain detects different images from both eyes. The brain can throw back one of these two different images, or it can switch between the two images. If the child does not detect one of the images, which eye comes from that image, it stops using the eye (amblyopia). One of your child's eyes may slip continuously or only when your child is tired, sick, or looks closely at objects. In fact, the eyes are normal, but if your child is older than 2-3 months and has symptoms of slipping in one eye; eye control of your child needs. Treatment may include eye wrap (eye closure), eye drops, glasses, or surgery.
Could you tell us about vision disorders?
If your child cannot see distant objects, it may be nearsighted or if nearby objects cannot be seen. If it sees both distant and nearby objects blurred, it may be highly hypermetropic. If your child's eyes have a round-shaped disorder and see objects blurred at any distance, astigmatism may occur. However, these vision disorders, which are common in children, can be treated using glasses or contact lenses. In some cases, amblyopia can be reached if precautions are not taken.
Is infection also seen in the eyes?
Infection and injury of the eye is common among children. Virus (viral) and bacterial infections spread rapidly in classes. In addition, children play with their eyes and pollute or stick objects in their eyes. In some cases there is a risk of permanent damage to the eye, so eye infections and injuries should be promptly intervened.
