These are all the abnormal eye conditions presenting before the age of 16 years.
These include conditions like
This is a small part of the huge list of eye conditions present in children. Conditions mentioned here are relatively easier to detect at primary care level and most of them can be treated to certain extent if diagnosed at a proper time.
All these diseases occur when simultaneous development of eye is taking place.
80% of eye development occurs within first 2 years of age rest of the 20 % development occurs during the next 8 to 10 years.
Therefore initial 8 to 10 years of life are most important for development of eye and vision.
Any problem during this period can interfere with normal development of vision and can have permanent impact throughout the life of a child. This can lead to years of functional disability Therefore even though the incidence of eye diseases in children is lesser than that of adults the total number of functional years lost is much more.
Second important issue with children is that they do not complain. So even if they have glasses, they will strain their eye and see but not complain. This is because they do not know what normal vision. Also is if only one eye vision is less and the other eye is normal then the problem doesn’t get recognized at all. Most of these type of eye problem get recognized when something happens to the normal eye or during the medical fitness tests for jobs.
Point to be emphasized here is if appropriate treatment is given at appropriate time, these diseases can be completely cured.
