Eye care is important from a young age
One of the most common vision problems i.e. myopia (nearsightedness) is likely to develop from childhood. Although the close-range vision is sharp and clear, long-range vision is vivid and it is difficult to look at objects that are far away. As your child is not likely to understand what is written on the blackboard, it could take a toll on his/her academics. Hence, regular eye checkups will ensure your child receives ideal treatment at the right time.
Technology could affect your child’s vision
At present, it is fair to say that technology is an important part of our lives. The onset of TV sets, computers, mobile phones means that your child is constantly looking at a screen either for entertainment or to learn something from the internet. Hence, the blue light that is emitted from the screen of these gadgets could lead to ocular changes that may go unnoticed for a long time. According to our experts, children should wear computer glasses to protect their eyes, decrease strain on the eye, and most importantly keep your eyes in ideal condition.
