Good vision is key to a child’s physical development, success in school and overall well-being. The vision system is not fully formed in babies and young children, and equal input from both eyes is necessary for the brain’s vision centers to develop normally.
We are located at 2 main centers in the National Capital Region. (NCR). With over 30 years of clinical expertise providing world class super speciality eye care, we aim to reverse the tide of curable blindness in the NCR and surrounding townships.
PATCHING / OCCLUSION EXERCISE
Amblyopia is usually corrected by making the child use their weaker eye. This can be done by putting a patch over the child’s stronger eye. Another way is to make vision blurry in the stronger eye using eye drops, or by wearing “fogged lens” eyeglasses. It may take months for the weaker eye to become stronger. Children do not like to have their stronger eye patched or blurred. However, you need to help your child do what is best for them.
CORRECTING THE SQUINT
Squint is when the eyes point in two different directions. One eye may be focused straight ahead while the other turns in, out, up, or down. To avoid seeing double, the child’s brain may ignore the image from the eye that is not focused straight ahead. But this can keep that eye from developing properly. Squint correction may be the next step of management, as decided by your surgeon.
Children often don't complain of decrease in vision, especially if its in one eye. Often squint in one eye or both eyes may be intermittent and not constant and can be missed by parents / guardians. A child’s vision develops in the first few years of life, thus it is important to diagnose and treat amblyopia as early as possible. Otherwise, a child with amblyopia will not develop normal, healthy vision.
Sometimes parents can tell if their child has a vision problem. For instance, their child may squint, hold reading material very close to their face, or complain about things appearing blurry. However, there are some less obvious signs of vision problems, like
