Much like learning to walk and talk, babies learn to see over time. While babies are still in the womb, they can tell the difference between light and dark but once they are born and develop, their sight changes and develops too.
Monday 18th September 2017 marks the start of National Eye Health Week which promotes the importance of eye health and having regular sight tests for all. Here at Eye Clinic London we have put together a list of useful tips and advice on how to keep everyone’s eyes, young and old, healthy and in tip top condition.
A lot of people think eye problems come with age, but there are many eye problems that newborn babies can have. Babies can develop eye problems for a variety of reasons such as from infections, present of problem at birth, or congenital eye problems, amongst other reasons. Here I will go through a few of these problems.
Christmas is nearly upon us and I expect many parents and families are looking at what toys to buy their children this year. Christmas should be a happy, fun time of year with children playing with their new toys, but thousands of children every year suffer from eye injuries caused by toys. These can range from minor accidents, which don’t require any attention from an eye doctor, to more serious accidents and even blindness. Some examples of eye injuries caused by toys are corneal abrasions, increased intraocular pressure and traumatic cataracts.
