Baby’s Eyes Glare When Taken Out Of The House?
Good evening with Riyanti I want to ask I have a baby aged 2 months more every time I invite out in the morning and in the evening always close my eyes like glare exposed to bright exposure outside but when brought into the house his eyes are open normally like biyasa about what causes it huh? Thanks
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, baby's eyes are the same as yours, having reflexes to close the eyes when too much light enters the eyes. If your baby's eyes are narrowed or closed when exposed to sunlight, this is normal and should be happening.
You also need to know that babies are not recommended to be exposed to direct sunlight (including also being dried directly in the sun) because it can increase the risk of burns to the skin and the risk of skin cancer. Sunlight contains UV radiation which is also dangerous for the eyes (especially the baby's eyes). Therefore, you are always recommended to protect your baby from direct sun exposure when you take your baby outside the house. You can use the canopy if you use a stroller, or wear a hat if you are carrying your baby.
If you are worried about certain disturbances to the baby's vision (for example the baby does not appear to make eye contact with you until more than 3 months of age or does not appear to follow objects that you move near his eyes at more than 2 months), you can bring your baby to the pediatrician for further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
