The schools going years are the formative years for determining one’s physical, intellectual and behavioral development. Any problem in the vision during the formative years can hamper the intellectual development, maturity & performance of a person in his future life.
Children usually don’t complain of defective vision. They may not even be aware of their problems. They adjust to the poor eyesight by moving closer to the back board, holding the books closer to their eye, squeezing the eyes and even avoiding work requiring visual concentration. This evades early detection.
Timely detection of these problems and their correction by spectacles (or surgery) can tremendously improve the child’s potential during his formative years. Visual impairment can be drag in the life of a child, his family and the society. Periodic screening of children helps in early identification of visual defects and prescriptions/use of corrective spectacles.
