All About

Children's Eye Care

There are several eye impairments that can affect a child from a young age. These include - Squint, Paediatric Cataract and watery eyes. If not detected at an early stage in life, these can lead to severe vision impairment in the later stages of life. We advise all our patients and well-wishers to have their children eye examined periodically, as a preventive measure, to avoid any future complication.

A Squint or Strabismus develops when the eye muscles do not work in a balanced way and the eyes do not move together correctly. This loss of coordination between the muscles of the two eyes leads to misalignment. Ideally, eyes move in parallel direction. But, in case of squint, also known as crossed eyes, one eye points in the direction in which the person is looking and the other eye turns inwards, outwards, upwards or downwards. This condition is more common in children than in adults.

The squinting eye is used less often and the brain tends to neglect the image from that eye. In children, this may lead to Amblyopia (Lazy Eye). Moreover, constant squint reduces the development of binocularity and depth perception which are required for various activities like driving, sports etc.


We believe in providing optimum quality eye care services in a patient friendly manner.NEC offers a complete range of eye care services including LASIK and PRK refractive surgery, eye exams, vision testing for glasses and contacts Lenses.
