The Eyes Of 6 Year Olds Always Narrow When They See The Light?
hello, my child is 6 years 7 months every time he saw his eyes narrowed. I have checked with one of my pediatric ophthalmologists in the initial diagnosis of order refraction disorder. I try to bring it to optics after checking on two optics the result is zero. does my child have to go through retinoscopy to find out what to do next
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Squinting (narrowing) when seeing bright light can be a reasonable reflex to limit the intensity of incoming light so as not to dazzle the view. It could also be done to explain the views, for example due to interference with refraction (refraction) of the eye. As for those included in this refractive eye disorder there are many, including myopia (nearsightedness), hypermetropia (farsightedness), astigmatism (astigmatism), and so on. In refractive eye disorders, the shadow of the object cannot be focused precisely on the retina so that it looks blurry. By squinting, complaints can improve and sufferers feel more comfortable.
Eye refraction disorders can be experienced by anyone, children are no exception. Genetic (hereditary) and environmental (such as activities carried out) factors are thought to play an important role in the emergence of this condition. If not handled properly, the impact of your child can later be interrupted by its activities, including the learning process.
Not only the refraction of the eye, the vision is not clear so it must be narrowed eyes can also be caused by other factors, for example cataracts, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, eye trauma, and so on.
Establishing a diagnosis of refractive eye disorders as well as other eye disorders as mentioned above does not always have to be done by retinoscopy. You should check your child again by an ophthalmologist for the best examination and treatment, for example with a sharp vision examination, ophthalmoscopy, or other supporting tests. Thus, only the right management can be done.
For now, what you should do is:
Give children a comfortable room for activity, enough lighting
Avoid giving children too much gadget too early
If the child complains of tired or sore eyes, ask him to rest, compress his eyes with cold water or cucumber
Cultivate children to have a healthy lifestyle, including by sleeping and waking up more regularly, and eating a variety of balanced nutritionally valued foods
Don't panic or worry too much
Do not carelessly provide treatment in the eyes of children without first consulting a doctor
Hope this helps ...
