Kids’ vision under 5
During the pre-school years, kids are learning to master many tasks that involve hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. They’ll also be starting to show an interest in screen time and storybooks. At this stage of a child’s life, it’s up to the parent to pick up on any warning signs or red flags that something may be wrong with their vision.
Kids’ vision aged 6-12
School-aged kids with eye problems are a little easier to spot than toddlers who are suffering from vision issues. They’re beginning to do homework, look at the whiteboard from a distance during their classes and play sports. All of these activities can allow parents and teachers to see some early warning signs.
Distracted children and their eye health
Most of what a child learns comes from what they see, so if their vision isn’t at its best, their schoolwork will suffer. Children can have an eye test and see very well down the eye chart, but still have eye health issues. This is where behavioural optometrists can help.
