There are many claims to stop myopia progression or even “cure” myopia in children. It is recommended for a child to have a proper eye check to understand the visual status and then discuss the best approach to appropriate eye care options which are guided by updated and proven research results.
At EyeCare@Duxton, we believe that good vision is important especially to a growing child. Early detection of vision abnormalities is crucial in a child’s rapidly growing visual system. For example, the detection of lazy eyes in a child is crucial as the treatment is more simple and prognosis is excellent when diagnosed and treated early. However past a certain age of around 8 years old, lazy eyes can be difficult to treat despite exhausting all treatment options.
Optometrists at EyeCare@Duxton are experienced in vision check for young children of all ages. If there is any doubts about your child’s vision, please feel free to drop by for a friendly consultation today!
