Refractive errors in children

2 August, 2023

Refractive error is a prevalent eye disorder when the eye cannot focus on images from the outside world. The result of refractive errors is blurred vision, sometimes impaired vision.

According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), it is estimated that by 2050 there will be more than 4 billion people with myopia in the world, accounting for 48.8% of the population.

Three common refractive disorders are:

  • Nearsightedness (Myopia): Difficulty seeing distant objects.
  • Farsightedness (Hyperopia): Difficulty seeing close things.
  • Astigmatism: Seeing blurred and distorted images

To know if the baby’s eye condition is healthy, parents should observe the symptoms and take the baby for regular eye exams with an eye doctor @ Prima Medical Center Saigon on a regular basis. Refractive errors have many treatment solutions, so parents do not need to worry too much. Our ophthalmologists will give detailed advice after examining.
