WHAT WE DO ?
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.
