Myopia: Signs and Symptoms
 
Children do not often complain that they can’t see and parents/ caregivers/ teachers are often the first to notice that the child is facing challenges with their vision. Hence, it is advised for children to get their eyes checked at least once during kindergarten and also yearly for school-aged children. And, it is also possible to get toddlers and babies to get their eyes checked by an optometrist too!
 
These are some of the possible signs/symptoms:

  • Difficulties copying from the whiteboard in school
  • Persistent need to squint or partially close eyelids to view
  • Eyestrain, visual discomfort and headaches
  • Child moving too close to the TV
  • Holding books too close while reading
  • Not able to notice distant objects
  • Blinking or rubbing eyes frequently
  • Head tilt or head turn to view sideways

Here are some advice from experts:

Children eye checks are not the same as eye checks meant for adults: read more about it here (link to this webpage http://igard.com.sg/eye-exam/children/paediatric-eye-examination.html)

Wearing glasses: Children's glasses are not miniature adult frames. Find out more about paediatric eyewear here.
