The following signs or symptoms may be an indication that your child has a vision problem.
We generally recommend examinations for children at 3 and 5 years, then annually through school. Many parents are lulled into a false sense of security about their child’s vision as they know that their sight has been “checked” by the school nurses. Unfortunately this is a very simple screening test which does not assess the complex processes involved in developing a comfortable visual system.
