Children can be born with eye disorders (congenital) or they may develop the disorders as they grow (developmental).
If not diagnosed and managed early, the visual prognosis after the age of 5 years is very poor.
If you notice you child tilts the head, squints, prefers watching the TV from very close, or puts the book close to the face when reading or writing, seek the attention of an eye specialist or a pediatrician very urgently.
The Pediatric Eye consultation is done on during routine clinic days by appointment. Surgical correction for Pediatric Cataracts, Squint and Ptosis is available at UHEAL.
You should visit an Eye Specialist once per year for routine checkup.For more information Contact Upper Hill Eye & Laser Centre (UHEAL) Nairobi Kenya or any other eye specialist near you.
