I have the impression that my 5 year old daughter does not see well. How can I check if my daughter needs glasses?
The very first advice that we can give is to make an appointment with a eye specialist who will test your child vision and verify if there is a real problem or whether it\'s simply a false alarm.
That said, as a general information, we can tell you that children can develop, even at a young age different eye conditions.
Sometimes the child develops problems of hyperopia (difficulty reading, for example) which may be accompanied by a burning sensation in the eyes and / or headaches. Or it could develop amblyopia (pathology also known as "lazy eye"), which is a visual disturbance that you are unable to correct, with the use of eyeglasses. In cases of amblyopia, one of the eyes just stops working. The cure for this problem is to healthy eye bandage to force the lazy eye to do his duty. so get used to transmit messages to the brain. The child may then develop myopia problems. This problem usually is discovered when the young man began to attend the school and the teacher notices that the child can not focus on what is written on the blackboard. Myopia is easily corrected with a simple pair of glasses. We Glance24 we package the glasses for myopic children regularly. Some children then suffer from astigmatism. This is a rather complex visual defect that manifests itself in various forms, but which can become quite annoying.
Difficult for a child to develop the defect presbyopia, because generally, children can see well up close. The problem of presbyopia affects people around the age of 45. Presbyopia is caused by the hardening of the lens.
In any case, the disturbances to children\'s views are not always easy to find, especially when they are very small. If there are no symptoms of vision problems in children, it is advisable to still make the first eye examination at the age of 4.
