Young children are unable to complain about their eye problems to their parents in the early stages. At Leela Eye Institute, Kalyan we believe that a routine eye check-up in the pre-school kid is important in detecting early eye problems and treating them accordingly.

Squint or being cock-eyed is another eye condition that needs to be addressed early on in children.

Normal visual development requires the brain to receive equally clear, focused images from both eyes simultaneously for the visual pathways to develop properly. Any problem in the vision pathway can lead to low vision in either one or both eyes. An early timely detection of the problem can help in rectifying or reducing the low vision or ocular abnormality.

Vision screening and eye examination are vital for the detection of conditions that distort or suppress the normal visual image, which may lead to inadequate school performance or, even worse, blindness in children.

Examination of the eyes can be performed at any age, beginning in the newborn period, and should be performed for a child at the earliest age that is practical, because a small child rarely complains that one eye is not seeing properly.

Retinal abnormalities, cataracts, glaucoma, retinoblastoma [eye tumor], eye muscle imbalances, and systemic disease with ocular manifestations may all be identified by careful examination.

An examination would include an external inspection of the eyes, tests for visual acuity on an age-appropriate basis, tests for ocular muscle movement and eye muscle imbalances and ophthalmoscopic examination.


If your child has not had an eye test recently, visit Leela Eye Institute at Kalyan. To get in touch with us, call us at 9769929052 or write in to us at wadekarabhijit@yahoo.co.in
