Eye Screening by Malaya Optical. To summarize, this article talks about the importance of eye screening for both children and adult.
Introduction To Children Eye Screening
According to the American Public Health Association, about 10% of preschoolers have eye problems. However, children rarely complain about their sight, but often show there may be a problem with their vision through their behavior. Moreover, some of these include sitting too close to the TV, rubbing their eyes a lot, holding objects very close to their face, blinking a lot, or one eye turning either in or out.
Importance of Children Eye Screening
The main goal of the eye screen is to identify children who have or are at risk of developing lazy eyes, which can lead to permanent impairment unless treated early.
For kids, uncorrected power may affect class performance and social well-being. It may even lead to depression or lack of confidence in students, particularly while they are growing-up and receiving learning experience at school. Therefore, eye screening is most effective when performed periodically throughout childhood.
Introduction To Adult Eye Screening
Cataract is clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Therefore, it is the most common cause of sight loss in people over age 40. The main causes of cataract is due to the aging process, where the natural lenses hardens.
Importance of Adult Eye Screening
A cataract starts out small and at first has little effect on your sight. However, it will slowly affect the eye through time. Moreover, a cataract may make light from the sun or a lamp seem too bright or glaring. Sometimes, one may notice when driving at night where the headlights cause more glare than before. Further to that, colors may not appear as bright as they once did. To summarize, such problems may affect long-term safety. We provide cataract screening and the process will take less than 5 minutes.
