Paediatric Eye Screening
Paediatric Eye ScreeningMost of us do not realize the importance of detecting Myopia early in our children. Early detection is crucial in Myopia prevention. In fact, by the time a child is detected to have reading problems during the School Health Screening, the Myopia level might be ‘200-300 degrees’ which is not ideal.
At Asia Retina, we aim to detect the onset of Myopia at its earliest stages so that we can slow it down immediately. This means that we recommend all children to have an eye screening assessment from the age of 3 to 4 years old to detect any early-onset Myopia. In addition, we are able to detect and treat any amblyopia or ‘lazy eye’ from as early as 3 years old.
