From birth to age two, a child’s eyes grow very fast.
Visual acuity stabilizes and sharpens as your child matures determining his or her future vision. The process can be disrupted in children whose vision is blocked by congenital cataract— this is one of many reasons why it is crucial children receive periodic eye examinations starting at age 6 months. Pediatric cataract is one of many childhood eye conditions that, if detected early, can be treated successfully.
