Early identification of a child’s vision problem is crucial.
Sixty per cent of children who are ‘problem learners’ have been found to suffer from undetected vision problems. Undetected vision problems are estimated to affect approximately one in four Australian children – or 600,000 nationally – which may contribute to potential learning difficulties in reading, writing, viewing a whiteboard, computer use and other classroom activities.
Outdoor exercise can slow down myopia
The onset of myopia in children can be prevented or delayed by spending more time outside. Studies have shown that the higher light levels that we are exposed to outdoors can help the eyes as they grow and develop. Light outdoors can be up to 100 times brighter than indoors. Our eyes benefit from bright light during development to regulate the rate at which they grow.
Common Eye and vision problems that affect young children include:
- Focusing problems
- Eye teaming problems
- Amblyopia (commonly referred to as “lazy eye”)
- Strabismus (one eye looks directly at the object you are viewing, while the other eye is misaligned inward)
- Convergence insufficiency (a condition that causes one eye to turn outward instead of inward with the other eye creating double or blurred vision
Brazionis Eyecare is committed to family-focused optometry. We provide eye tests for all ages so it’s never too early to bring your kids in for an eye test.
