Visual Impairment In Children Aged 7 Years?
Hello … doctor, please explain … my child is just turning 7 years of age next October.
Good morning. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Unclear vision when looking at a blackboard can be related to a visual disorder called refractive disorders. For distant vision it can usually be in the form of nearsightedness referred to as myopia and or accompanied by cylindrical conditions or called astigmatism.
Myopia is a visual disturbances for distant vision can usually occur because the eyeball has a shorter size or shape of the lens so that the image seen by the eye falls in front of the capture screen (retina), this causes when looking at distant objects to appear unclear. The usual symptom is that distant vision seems blurred. As well as several other symptoms such as squinting, eyes easily feel tired and runny.
Astigamtism is a vision disorder in which the image becomes double because of the shape of the eye precisely the lens and cornea are irregular. Usually the symptoms felt are double vision, straight lines appear oblique. Accompanied by an unfocused view.
To ascertain the cause of the symptoms felt by your child, you should check with an ophthalmologist so that it can be ascertained whether nearsightedness or cylinder or nearsightedness with a cylinder.
Some good things to do to maintain and improve eye health are
1. Eat foods rich in vitamin A such as carrots, tomatoes
2. Limiting the use of electronic devices
3. Use sunglasses or protectors when exposed to sunlight for a long time
4. When using the eyes for activities such as reading or in front of the screen you should rest periodically.
Thus the things that we can convey hopefully useful thanks
