Between the ages of 2 and 5 years, the child's visual ability becomes more and more strong. It is also the time frame that vision problems can begin to develop. Crossed or lazy eye problems can be some of them.
Approximately 10% of all preschool children have vision problems, and most kids at that age are not voicing their complaints about the eye. Some of these signs may help you to monitor your child’s eye condition:
– Difficulty identifying colors, shapes, letters, numbers
– Sitting close to the TV/holding a book close to their faces
– Difficulty with hand-body coordination
By the time your child is 3 years old, you have to bring them to an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye examination to make sure that their eyes are well developed.
