CHILDREN'S VISION FROM BIRTH TO 2 YEARS
Babies learn to see over a period of time, much like they learn to walk and talk. They are not born with all the visual abilities they need in life. The ability to focus their eyes, move them accurately, and use them together as a team must be learned. Also, they need to learn how to use the visual information the eyes send to their brain in order to understand the world around them and interact with it appropriately.
From birth, babies begin exploring the wonders in the world with their eyes. Even before they learn to reach and grab with their hands or crawl and sit-up, their eyes are providing information and stimulation important for their development. Healthy eyes and good vision play a critical role in how infants and children learn to see.
Eye and vision problems in infants can cause developmental delays. It is important to detect any problems early to ensure babies have the opportunity to develop the visual abilities they need to grow and learn. Parents play an important role in helping to assure their child's eyes and vision can develop properly.
STEPS THAT ANY PARENT SHOULD TAKE INCLUDE:
*) Watching for signs of eye and vision problems.
*) Seeking professional eye care starting with the first comprehensive vision assessment at about 6 months of age.
*) Helping their child develop his or her vision by engaging in age-appropriate activities.
STEPS IN INFANT VISION DEVELOPMENT
At birth, babies can't see as well as older children or adults. Their eyes and visual system aren't fully developed. But significant improvement occurs during the first few months of life.
The following are some milestones to watch for in vision and child development. It is important to remember that not every child is the same and some may reach certain milestones at different ages.
FROM BIRTH TO 4 MONTHS
At birth, babies' vision is abuzz with all kinds of visual stimulation. While they may look intently at a highly contrasted target, babies have not yet developed the ability to easily tell the difference between two targets or move their eyes between the two images. Their primary focus is on objects 8 to 10 inches from their face or the distance to parent's face.
*) During the first months of life, the eyes start working together and vision rapidly improves. Eye-hand coordination begins to develop as the infant starts tracking moving objects with his or her eyes and reaching for them. By eight weeks, babies begin to more easily focus their eyes on the faces of a parent or other person near them.
*) For the first two months of life, an infant's eyes are not well coordinated and may appear to wander or to be crossed. This is usually normal. However, if an eye appears to turn in or out constantly, an evaluation is warranted.
*) Babies should begin to follow moving objects with their eyes and reach for things at around three months of age.
FROM 5 TO 8 MONTHS
*During these months, control of eye movements and eye-body coordination skills continue to improve.
*Depth perception, which is the ability to judge if objects are nearer or farther away than other objects, is not present at birth.
*It is not until around the fifth month that the eyes are capable of working together to form a three-dimensional view of the world and begin to see in depth.
*Although an infant's color vision is not as sensitive as an adult's, it is generally believed that babies have good color vision by five months of age.
*Most babies start crawling at about 8 months old, which helps further develop eye-hand-foot-body coordination.
*Early walkers who did minimal crawling may not learn to use their eyes together as well as babies who crawl a lot.
FROM 9 TO 12 MONTHS
*At around 9 months of age, babies begin to pull themselves up to a standing position.
*By 10 months of age, a baby should be able to grasp objects with thumb and forefinger.
*By 12 months of age, most babies will be crawling and trying to walk.
*Parents should encourage crawling rather than early walking to help the child develop better eye-hand coordination.
*Babies can now judge distances fairly well and throw things with precision.
FROM 1 TO 2 YEARS OLD
*By 2 years of age, a child's eye-hand coordination and depth perception should be well developed.
*Children this age are highly interested in exploring their environment and in looking and listening.
*They recognize familiar objects and pictures in books and can scribble with crayon or pencil.
SIGNS OF EYE AND VISION PROBLEMS
The presence of eye and vision problems in infants is rare.
*) Most babies begin life with healthy eyes and start to develop the visual abilities they will need throughout life without difficulty. But occasionally, eye health and vision problems can develop.
Parents need to look for the following signs that may be INDICATIONS OF EYE AND VISION PROBLEMS:
EXCESSIVE TEARING - this may indicate blocked tear ducts
RED or ENCRUSTED EYE LIDS - this could be a sign of an eye infection
CONSTANT EYE TURNING - this may signal a problem with eye muscle control
EXTREME SENSITIVITY TO LIGHT - this may indicate an elevated pressure in the eye
APPEARANCE OF A WHITE PUPIL - this may indicate the presence of an eye cancer
The appearance of any of these signs should require immediate attention by your optometrist.
WHAT PARENTS CAN DO TO HELP WITH VISUAL DEVELOPMENT
There are many things parents can do to help their baby's vision develop properly.
The following are some examples of age-appropriate activities that can assist an infant's visual development.
FROM BIRTH TO 4 MONTHS
*Use a nightlight or other dim lamp in your baby's room.
*Change the crib's position frequently and change your child's position in it.
*Keep reach-and-touch toys within your baby's focus, about eight to twelve inches.
*Talk to your baby as you walk around the room.
*Alternate right and left sides with each feeding.
FROM 5 TO 8 MONTHS
*Hang a mobile, crib gym or various objects across the crib for the baby to grab, pull and kick.
*Give the baby plenty of time to play and explore on the floor.
*Provide plastic or wooden blocks that can be held in the hands.
*Play patty cake and other games, moving the baby's hands through the motions while saying the words aloud.
FROM 9 TO 12 MONTHS
*Play hide and seek games with toys or your face to help the baby develop visual memory.
*Name objects when talking to encourage the baby's word association and vocabulary development skills.
*Encourage crawling and creeping.
FROM 1 TO 2 YEARS
*Roll a ball back and forth to help the child track objects with the eyes visually.
*Give the child building blocks and balls of all shapes and sizes to play with to boost fine motor skills and small muscle development.
*Read or tell stories to stimulate the child's ability to visualize and pave the way for learning and reading skills.
RETINOBLASSTOMA (EYE CANCER IN CHILDREN)
Retinoblastoma is a rare type of eye cancer that can affect young children, usually under the age of 5.
If it's picked up early, retinoblastoma can often be successfully treated. More than 9 out of 10 children with the condition are cured.
Retinoblastoma can either affect 1 or both eyes. If it affects both eyes, it's usually diagnosed before a child is 1 year old. If it affects 1 eye, it tends to be diagnosed later (between the ages of 2 and 3).

Hyperopia (long-sightedness) is the condition where you see things at a distance more clearly than those that are nearby.
It is easily treated with glasses or contact lenses. The condition can be solved in the long term with lens surgery or laser eye surgery.
Hyperopia (long-sightedness) commonly occurs because the shape of your eye is too short. This causes light to be focused behind your retina rather than on to it. Your lens changes its thickness to compensate for this, resulting in blurred vision.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF Hyperopia?
Distant objects can be clear
Nearby objects are out of focus
Having to squint to focus
Pain in your eyes
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF HYPEROPIA?
Your eyeball is too short
The transparent layer at the front of your eye (cornea) is not curved enough
HOW DO YOU TREAT HYPEROPIA?
Laser eye surgery
Uveitis is a condition that causes the middle layer of your eye (your uvea) to swell up and become inflamed. This can blur your vision, as well as making your eye feel very sore and sensitive to light.
Treatment for the condition depends on what part of the eye is affected. Uveitis happens when the eye gets inflamed. It is thought to occur because of a problem with the immune system, but the exact cause isn't known.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF UVEITIS?
Painful red eye
Sensitivity to light
Loss of side vision
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF UVEITIS?
Injury to the eye
HOW DO YOU TREAT UVEITIS?
Laser eye surgery
BLEPHARITIS is the irritation of the lid margin, where eyelashes join the eyelid. This is a common condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids and which is quite difficult to manage because it tends to recur. This condition is mainly caused by staphylococcus infection and scalp dandruff.

• burning sensation
• scratchy eyes
• excessive tearing
• blurred vision
• redness of the eye
• light sensitivity
• red and swollen eyelids
• dry eye
• crusting of the eyelashes on awakening.
• Good hygiene of the eye
