Children's Vision

In the first 5 years of life we learn to see. At first, your child's visual development is incredibly fast; within a week after birth your baby will able to see your smile.

At about 6 weeks your baby will be able to see objects up close. Those objects will be seen in high contrast colors only, such as black, white and red, and by 4 months both eyes should be working together.

As months go by, your child's visual acuity improves. By six months of age, your child's visual acuity should be much sharper, with more accurate and better eye movement.

By the age of nine to twelve months, babies should be using their eyes and hands together.

By two years of age, a child's eye-hand coordination and depth perception should be well developed. More complex task such as colour vision will also slowly develop.

During the preschool years from ages 3 to 6, your child will be fine-tuning the vision and visual skills he already has developed during the infant and toddler years.
For example, many preschoolers are learning to ride tricycles and master the complex eye-hand coordination needed to pedal, steer and watch where they're going at the same time.

Older preschoolers are learning how to integrate vision and body motions (motor skills) by playing sports such as softball (keep your eye on the ball!), and working on the fine motor skills needed to write their names.

Amblyopia (also called "Lazy Eye") is the most common eye problem for children under 5 years old. It is a condition when an unfocused eye "turns off" and becomes amblyopic. The eyes can look normal but one eye has poor vision. Leaving untreated ....

The school years are a very important time in every child's life. Good vision is a key. Reading, writing, chalkboard work, and using computers are among the visual tasks students perform daily. Refractive errors are the most common cause of vision problems among school-age children. There are 3 common types of refractive errors which are myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
