The Eyes Of 2-year-old Children Are Not Strong When They See The Sun?
, my son is a 2-year-old boy, every time his right eye is exposed to the sun, he immediately closes his right eye, and gradually opens a little but not fully open like his normal left eye. Please what is the cause and how to overcome it. Thank you
Hi Anom ... Thank you for the question.
Eyes that are sensitive to light in medical language are called photophobia. Eye disorders that cause photophobia include:
Infections such as episcleritis, kalazion
Glaucoma - results from an increase in eye pressure
Eye disorders in children need to get the attention of parents. Therefore, if the complaint on your child is getting worse, accompanied by red eyes, itchy eyes, there is a vision problem, so it's good to check your child to the eye doctor. So that doctors can examine both the front and inner eyes using tools such as small flashlights. Whereas the best thing to do is:
Avoid holding the child's eyes
Avoid exposure to dust or dirt on the eyes of children. Children can use glasses when out of the room.
