Children’s eye treatment: What is vision correction for children?


Vision correction for children usually is through glasses.

Occasionally, we might encourage children to wear contact lenses if that gives them a better visual potential. In very rare cases, we consider laser vision correction.

The risk and benefits of refractive surgery will have to be discussed. This is usually a therapeutic surgery more than a refractive option…

Occasionally, there are patients with poor eyesight, that’s normally due to something abnormal in their corneas, for example, that is the front window of the eye, it’s got scarring or opacity that stop the lights from entering the eye.

The treatment, in this case, would be more like optimizing their vision as much as possible.

Sometimes we have to do some surgery on the cornea, such as laser surgery or some partial thickness cornea transplantation to improve the clarity of the cornea. You can call this cornea transplantation.
