Eye Diseases Specialist Op. Dr. and member of Turkey Medicals, gave information about situations where you should take your children to your ophthalmologist. Further describing the most common eye problems, said that particular attention should be paid to the age at which the sense of vision develops the most.

Eye health is usually the most neglected issue in children’s health. Experts who say that children should be taken to an ophthalmologist when they are first born, at the age of 6 months and before starting school, say that even the slightest doubt should not be neglected, except in these cases. Istanbul Eye Hospital Eye Diseases Specialist Op. Dr. warned the parents.


Diseases that can be seen in infants in Turkey patients are cataracts, canjunctivitis, corneal diseases, glaucoma, eye tumors, premature retinopathy and tear duct blockages. The most common childhood eye diseases are vision defects, strabismus and child lazy eye treatments in Istanbul clinics Turkey. These diseases can be successfully treated, especially when they are diagnosed early.


The use of glasses in infancy plays an important role in strabismus and lazy eyes. For this reason, if the child has complaints such as headache, eye fatigue, inability to see well near or far, watching TV closely, squinting or winking the eyes, tilting the head to the shoulder or lifting the jaw, an eye examination should be performed. Such complaints suggest vision defects such as hypermetropia, myopia, astigmatism in the child. If the ophthalmologist deems it necessary after the eye examination in Turkey, the use of glasses should be started immediately, regardless of age.

Families often avoid the use of glasses, neglect them, or do not bother if the child does not want to use glasses. However, using glasses at this age can completely eliminate or alleviate the conditions of laziness and Strabismus that may occur in the future.

It is important to note that the development of vision occurs most rapidly between the ages of 0-2, and the vision formed between the ages of 2-6 accounts for 95% of the total vision. Therefore, the use of glasses in childhood should be given the necessary attention.
