We all worry about our children’s eyesight and as a parent, I am no exception. My son wears glasses for reading and whilst using the computer.
I try to limit his computer usage, but as he is a teenager it is very hard to keep the youth of today from using technology. My son’s other hobby is reading and he is a real bookworm, I love the fact he gets so engrossed in books and reads daily, yet this also puts a strain on his eyes and I am consistently reminding him to wear his glasses at home It does worry me about how much he wears his glasses at school as I am not there to prompt him!
On his last two visits to the opticians, I have felt really guilty as a parent when his prescription for his glasses needed to be made stronger due to his eyesight health declining.
My eldest son also used to wear glasses for a couple of years but fortunately, his eyesight improved and he no longer needs to wear glasses.
I was really impressed when I saw this on-line tool from Vision Direct the leading online retailer of contact lenses in Europe which shows parents what their baby’s sight might be like as he or she grows older.
Using the simple interface, parents can quickly shift from a newborn’s first view to the fully developed vision of a Twelve-month-old child. Developed by opticians, this digital tool features a simple sliding scale to show the developmental stages of a baby’s eyesight.
You simply Input your child’s age and the tool will give you some idea of what your baby’s field of vision, depth perception and colour awareness might be like.
As you move the slider, you’ll notice colours and objects become sharper. For instance, a newborn will see only black and white while a two-month-old will see only bright primary shades.
Vision Direct hopes parents can refer to this tool as their baby grows and use this resource to encourage healthy development.
