The human eye is a complex organ that works with the brain to enable good vision. The importance of good eye health is rarely fully appreciated until symptoms arise.
Irritation, redness, inward or outward drifting of the eye and blurred vision may be experienced when the eye is not in good health. If left untreated, these can lead to wider problems such as lack of optimal visual development, difficulty concentrating at school or work and social anxiety.
Symptoms may come and go, or they may appear daily. Either way, it is never too late to make a commitment to your own eye health, or that of your children.
Do any of the following symptoms apply to your child?
- Red or itchy eyes on a regular basis
- Complains of blurred vision, seeing double or tired eyes
- Rubs eye frequently
- Persistent watery eye
- Lazy eye – where one eye may wander inward or outward
- Diagnosis of dyslexia
- Other eye complaints
