Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see. A child needs many abilities to succeed in school and good vision is the main key. Children, unlike adults, need special care and attention.
As children are unable to express the difficulty in vision, it is highly recommended to have a objective comprehensive eye examination before they get enrolled in a school .
Careful attention to a child’s eye health can help catch problems early, while their eyes are still developing. Parents play an important role in helping to assure their child’s eyes and vision can develop properly.
Many vision problems that are found early can be corrected. Following are few conditions to be noticed by parents and to report to the clinic without delay:
We at Rajan Eye Care hospital aim to provide child friendly environment and encourage fun way examination techniques with special charts, including toys. We believe in timely diagnosis and management in kids for better binocular vision later in life, which helps in enhanced performance.
An overall child friendly atmosphere has been created which includes a play area with cushioned floors where children would not hurt themselves and walls covered with favourite cartoon characters to make children feel free and comfortable.
