Total Eye Care Hospital for Children

About 20-30% of the normal school going children have some kind of Refractive Error (glass numbers). The common problems in children are:

  • Glass number
  • Amblyopia or Lazy Eye
  • Squint


We recommend that preschool children receive a complete eye examination at the age of five years or earlier if any problem is noticed. If you answer “Yes” or ” Sometimes ” to four or more of the following questions, your child may have a visual problem.


Does your child :

  • Holds object very close to their eyes?
  • Excessively rub their eyes, blink or squint after close visual work?
  • Complain of headaches after reading?
  • Becomes tired after reading?
  • Have difficulty comprehending what they have read?
  • Complain of headaches or eyestrain?
  • Have red or watery eyes (which could also be a sign of allergies).
  • Performs below expected levels in school?
  • Have a short attention span or difficulty staying on task?
  • Have an eye that turns in or out?
  • Complaints of blurred vision with schoolwork or reading?
  • Have difficulty copying from a textbook or chalkboard?
  • Avoids reading? Or goes very near to the TV while watching programmes.
