Consultation of a pediatric ophthalmologist (pediatric ophthalmology)

The eyes are one of the most important sense organs of a person. With the help of sight, the child learns to know the world and perceives 90% of the information from the world around him. Recently, diseases of the visual system have become very popular. This is due to the use of modern gadgets, mobile phones, laptops, TVs, e-books. All these technologies have a negative effect on visual acuity, lead to eye fatigue. The load on vision also increases during the school years: improper lighting of the workplace, non-compliance with the work-rest regime, insufficient distance from the eyes to the book, awkward position at the desk or table - all these factors contribute to constant strain on the eye muscle, resulting in vision begins to form incorrectly. Any visual impairment, even seemingly minor, changes the quality of life of the child, so it is very important to regularly consult and be examined by a pediatric ophthalmologist.

  • Lacrimal duct obstruction.

When is it necessary to consult a pediatric ophthalmologist?

The first scheduled examination by a pediatric ophthalmologist should be performed at the age of 2-3 months, then every six months and a year. In the future, if there are no other medical recommendations, it is recommended to check the child's vision annually. Such periodicity will allow to suspect visual disturbances in time and to carry out a correction in time.

In addition, it is unscheduled to seek help from an ophthalmologist in the following situations:

  • if the baby squints, complains of decreased vision, "bifurcation" of objects, the appearance of "flies" in front of the eyes;
