Turkey medical member Turkey Medicals and Eye diseases and eye surgery specialist Prof. Dr. noted the risk of eye pressure in large-eyed infants.

Infant Eye diseases Turkish specialist Prof. Dr. draws attention to eye diseases that occur in later ages with eye diseases that are not monitored in infancy. Turkish specialist Prof. Dr. notes that with the right treatment for children in the first three years, blindness can be prevented, especially due to cataracts and eye blood pressure.

It is not a yeti whose eyesight completes its development in the womb! On the contrary, it is a process that develops rapidly from the moment we are born. It is the fastest and most important development in the first three years. Almost all of the eye problems that parents usually detect at the age of starting school when their children complain also occur during the first three years of age. For this reason, the intervention in eye problems in the first three years of life prevents the eye diseases that the child will experience in adulthood.

If the first eye examination of the baby is performed between nine and 12 months, many eye health problems will be solved, an expert in eye diseases and eye surgery professor said Turkish specialist Prof. Dr. believes that blindness can be prevented by early intervention.

Turkey doctor center clinic reviews and news said, “there are three main factors that disrupt the development of children’s vision. Almost every child is hypermetropic when they are born. Hypermetropia depends on the fact that the eyeball has not yet reached its full adult size. If it is above 4 degrees, precautions should be taken, since there will be a risk of eye laziness and Strabismus. Another problem is that there is a difference in the degree of the eye between the two eyes, that is, anisometropia. If there is a difference between the degrees of the eyes detected during the examination, precautions should be taken. Another factor is strabismus. In newborn babies, the brain’s mechanism for controlling eye movements may not be fully developed, and short-term eye shifts may be observed. In this case, you should not panic. But if a constant shift is noticed, it is important to immediately contact an Turkish Antalya and Istanbul specialist Prof. Dr. ophthalmologist,” he says.


Congenital cataracts and eye pressure leading to significant problems that will extend to blindness in old age and are common ailments, Turkish specialist Prof. Dr. said, “Sometimes the mother’s diseases during pregnancy, depending on the medications she takes, babies may have cataract eyes surgery in Turkey Antalya and Istanbul. Those who have a level that can negatively affect vision development should be operated on as soon as possible. If time is passed, lazy eyes that will not be able to be corrected in the future are inevitable,” he says.

Turkey specialist Prof. Dr. noted that there may be eye pressure in large-eyed infants; “eye pressure in infants is caused by abnormalities associated with development. A fluid is produced inside the eye that feeds the tissues. Excess of this fluid is excreted through the eye canals. If these channels are blocked at birth, pressure occurs in the eye due to fluid accumulation. Because the eye wall is thin in infants, the eye looks larger than it is. For this reason, children with very large eyes should be checked at an early stage,” he said.


Turkish specialist Prof. Dr., who explains that eye controls in premature babies should be followed very closely, also draws attention to the disease of premature retinopathy. Turk specialist Prof. Dr.: “premature retinopathy is a disease that occurs in infants with birth weights below 1500 g due to premature birth and receiving oxygen therapy in incubators. The development process of retinal vessel structure should be monitored by conducting eye examinations every five to six days immediately after birth. If the necessary precautions are not taken in these babies, permanent and incurable damage to the retina may occur,” he says.

Turkish health member Turkey Medicals and Eye diseases and eye surgery specialist Prof. Dr. noted the risk of eye pressure in large-eyed infants., who stated that eye examination in infants has become more and more practical thanks to the developing technology, said: “with the developing technology, children’s eye checks can now be easily done. With new Turkey laser eyes surgery technologies, we examine the baby’s eyes with drops, and according to the results, we can take precautions if necessary. By applying this protocol, we can identify problems that will cause vision defects in the future caused by infancy and treat them early,” he said.
