Why you should have your children's eye examined immediately!

  • 1 in 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed vision problems
  • 1 in 30 children will be affected by amblyopia – often referred to as lazy eye – a leading cause of vision loss in people younger than 45 years
  • 1 in 25 will develop strabismus – more commonly known as crossed-eyes – a risk factor for amblyopia
  • 1 in 33 will show significant refractive error such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism
  • 1 in 100 will exhibit evidence of eye disease – e.g. glaucoma
  • 1 in 20,000 children have retinoblastoma (intraocular cancer) the seventh most common pediatric cancer

  1. I will take note of this because I don’t want my child to have vision problems. Nearsighted and far sighted eye condition is very common so I don’t want my child to have it.
