Paediatric (Kids) Clinic

Regular eye tests for kids are crucial as they aid in the early detection of vision problems, which children may not always verbalize. Timely intervention is crucial in cases of nearsightedness, farsightedness, , astigmatism, Amblyopia (Lazy Eye), Strabismus (eye turns) and common childhood eye disseases.

  • Recommendation

    Children usually can't tell if they have blurry vision as most are born with it. The blurriness can be permeanent if it is not corrected before the age of 9.

    We recommend that kids get their eyes checked around the age of 3 to give us adequate time to correct any eye conditions needed. Best practice for our community to get their eyes checked yearly as part of their general health care program.
