Paediatric ophthalmology is an ophthalmology subspecialty that focuses on treating children’s eye problems. According to studies, vision problems can cause a lot of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and learning problems in children.
It is critical to address and correct problems in newborns as soon as possible. If the child is not treated within the first six months of his or her life, there is a good chance that the child will be visually impaired for the rest of his or her life. The reason for this is that the optic nerve that connects the eyes to the brain is still developing, and if any prevalent disease is not treated on time, there could be a permanent disconnect between the eyes and brain, eventually leading to total blindness.
Routine comprehensive eye exams should be an important part of your child’s healthcare regimen. While problems such as squinting or drooping eyelids are easily detectable, parents may find it difficult to identify issues such as lazy eye and refractive errors. Especially since most children do not report the problem to their parents because they frequently lack the ability to recognize that their visual skills have changed. It is thus the primary responsibility of parents to notice any change in their children’s behavioral patterns, such as watching TV from a close distance, straining excessively to read from a book, or suddenly performing poorly in school.
