Children’s eye health

As a result of negligence caused by a lack of knowledge about eye diseases, our children may encounter problems that become more difficult to treat at later ages. Many important eye diseases occur at an early age. However, successful results can be achieved with early diagnosis and correct treatment.

What way should be followed to protect the eye health of children in the 0-16 age group?

The first eye examination should be done at the age of 2-3 months. With the examination, congenital eye diseases will be screened.

The next process should continue as the first year and annual follow-up examinations. This will facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of existing or potential eye problems.


What are the symptoms of eye diseases in children?

  • Squint of the eye (strabismus)
  • Not following with eyes
  • Eye redness or watering
  • Eye tremor
